Romania’s Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCIR) and the Romanian-American Chamber of Commerce (AmCham Romania) have signed a cooperation agreement in order to intensify private investments and to consolidate trade relations between Romania and the US.
The agreement, which reaffirms the cooperation between the two organizations, a cooperation that started in 1995, stipulates mutual collaboration against the backdrop of free trade negotiations between the US and the European Union (TTIP). CCIR and AmCham Romania seek to intensify bilateral cooperation through joint projects for Romanian and American companies, Agerpres informs.
“The agreement between the two organizations focuses on the opportunities created by the current global economic context. Through this agreement we want to create synergies between public and private sector initiatives and to boost Romanian-American bilateral cooperation,” CCIR President Mihai Daraban stated.
In his turn, AmCham President Mark A. Meyer (photo) pointed out: “We are particularly thrilled with the reaffirmation of the cooperation agreement with CCIR at the time of AmCham’s 25th anniversary. AmCham Romania’s program and investment-related events focus on over 25,000 US companies that are determined to do business in Europe. CCIR and AmCham members can expect to benefit from the strengthening of our cooperation,” Meyer stated.
