On Thursday, Lower House Speaker Liviu Dragnea met Israeli Premier Benjamin Netanyahu, the two officials discussing opportunities to consolidate bilateral cooperation by drawing Israeli capital into Romania’s Sovereign Fund for Development and Investments (FSDI) and also in other sectors of the Romanian economy.
“Today (Thursday – editor’s note), I had the pleasure to discuss with Benjamin Netanyahu, the Prime Minister of Israel and Minister of Foreign Affairs, the opportunities to consolidate our cooperation by drawing Israeli capital into the Sovereign Fund for Development and Investments, but also in other sectors of the Romanian economy,” Liviu Dragnea wrote on Facebook.
The PSD leader and the Israeli Premier also talked about cooperation in the technological and industrial research domain, particularly about the laser in Magurele.
“In fact, Romania and Israel have excellent collaboration in the defence and education sectors, cooperation that substantiates the development of the bilateral partnership in the field of defence and military research, as well as the field of cybersecurity,” Liviu Dragnea added.
