Trade Winds, the largest annual US government-led trade mission, targeting this year Southeast Europe, will take place in Bucharest October 18-20 with many American and Romanian companies expected to attend, representatives of the US Department of Commerce told a press meeting.
The 10th edition of Trade Winds takes place in South East Europe (Romania, Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece and Serbia) over October 16 – 24.
Bucharest will host a forum on running business in the region. The mission to Romania brings together American and Romanian companies in an attempt to create business partnerships between our countries; several hundred business-to-business meetings will also take place as part of the event.
According to representatives of the US Department of Commerce, many of the US companies present at the event are already running businesses based in Romania, but also attending will be representatives of American companies that so far have not heard much about the Romanian economy, and now have the opportunity to learn about it, with the country’s economic growth counting as a major criterion that cannot be overlooked.
The companies attending the event are from aerospace, defense, agriculture, engineering, auto, energy, environment, health, tourism, security and others.
Event organizers hope this mission will strengthen the trade and economic components of the Strategic Partnership with Romania.
Around 50 representatives of the Department of Commerce and 80 – 100 small and medium-sized companies will have the opportunity to participate in the mission throughout South-Eastern Europe. Bucharest will be a hub for the event with the forum on doing business in the region.
