In a Facebook webchat with Romanians, ambassador of the United States of America in Bucharest Hans G. Klemm on Tuesday suggested Romanians, should set a national goal “to become, maybe in 20-25 years, as rich as the French.”
“Or maybe, because Romania is the 6th biggest country in the EU, to become the 6th richest country in the EU. To this end, Romania would need to take the necessary measures, to reform public administration, to improve education and healthcare for the population, to improve infrastructure. Eventually, Romania would be prosperous, democratic and strong, precisely the ally the US dreams of,” Klemm added.
He pointed out that the best partner and ally for the US is a “prosperous, democratic, safe” Romania, maintaining that although the country currently has “an extraordinary economic potential,” it still remains “one of the poorest countries in the European Union.”
I agree with Ciolos; ANAF action hasn’t influenced Antena’s right to broadcast
Ambassador of the United States of America in Bucharest Hans Klemm said he agrees with Prime Minister Dacian Ciolos that the action carried out by the National Agency for Fiscal Administration (ANAF) hasn’t influenced the right of the channels owned by the Intact group to broadcast, pointing out that ANAF has only acted to enforce a court decision.
“I agree with Prime Minister Ciolos that the ANAF action hasn’t influenced Antena’s right to broadcast. ANAF has only acted to enforce a final court decision issued long before to retrieve some assets obtained through corruption and stolen from the Romanian people,” the US ambassador told a Facebook webchat with Romanians.
