PM Ponta to meet US State Secretary of Commerce in Washington

Prime Minister Victor Ponta opened the Government meeting on Tuesday announcing his visit to Washington, to meet the Secretary of Commerce and representatives of the American business.

‘I will travel to Washington to meet the State Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker (photo) and other representatives of business on the economic dimension of the Romania-USA Strategic Partnership. I say this every time: better economic relations should accompany our excellent political and military ones,’ Ponta said.

He asked his Cabinet members with economic attributions to remove ‘administrative and bureaucratic barriers’, in order to make Romania attractive for American business investments.

‘I want us to show we are a country where it’s worth investing, not just because we are strategic partners of the United States, but also because we have a legislation and a system that support American investments,’ Ponta claimed.

Political sources quoted by Agerpres say the prime minister should leave for Washington on Tuesday night and should return at the end of this week.
