10/02/15 – On September 25th, the American-Romanian Business Council (AMRO) hosted the President of Romania, Klaus Iohannis, for the “American-Romanian Investor’s Dialogue” at MetLife offices in New York City.  President Iohannis engaged high level American corporate representatives on Romanian priorities for continuing to grow the economic relationship between the United States and Romania.

The President, accompanied by Romanian Foreign Minister Bogdan Aurescu and newly arrived Romanian Ambassador to the United States George Maior, noted the strategic relationship of Romania and the United States is not limited to just security and defense but commerce as well.  He emphasized Romania’s unique investment potential, particularly in the transportation, telecommunications, and energy sectors.  President Iohannis also asserted the Romanian government’s staunch commitment to eradicating corruption.

Company representatives had the opportunity to discuss US issues in Romania and discussed agriculture, cybersecurity, and the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (T-TIP). AMRO President Eric Stewart noted in his opening statement that American companies remain “bullish” on doing business in Romania.
