Basescu also thanked Romanians living in Japan, calling them true ambassadors who, through their conduct and activity, make Romania proud.

In a short statement, President Basescu described Romanian-Japanese relations as being smooth and fruitful, expressed his confidence in further bilateral co-operation, as well as his belief that Romania was a market of big interest where Japanese companies could develop and which they could use in order to enter EU market, with no restrictions or customs constraints. He said he was convinced his visit would invigorate trade relations and mutual investment.

Attending were the Keidanren Vice-Presidents for Europe, Yoshimitsu Kobayashi and Shinichi Yokohama, as well as Finance Minister Sebastian Vladescu, Romanian Ambassador to Japan Aurelian Neagu and the Japanese Ambassador to Romania, Natsuo Amemiya.
