Congress of Romanians Everywhere to be held June 24-25


A congress of Romanians everywhere will be convened for June 24-25, under a joint decision of Parliament’s standing bureaus, Chairman of the Chamber of Deputies’ Committee on Romanians Everywhere Mircea Lubanovici said Wednesday.

“Convened in a joint session, the standing bureaus of the Senate and the Chamber of Deputies decided by a majority to set the convention of the congress at June 24-25, 2016. I have gladly received the news because ever since I started up in politics I have been an advocate of Romanians keeping in touch with their motherland, of Romanians everywhere never forgetting where they come from and I have tried my best for Romanian state officials to stay in continual cooperation with the Romanians overseas,” Lubanovici told a news conference.

He added that more details of the event will be decided on at a joint meeting of the standing bureaus of Romania’s Parliament on March 21.
