The Romanian-German Chamber of Commerce and Industry (AHK Romania) has organised the visit, in Cluj-Napoca and Bucharest, of a Bavarian economic delegation led by Franz Josef Pschierer (photo), Secretary of State within Bavaria’s Ministry for Economy and Media, Energy and Technology.
Franz Josef Pschierer is accompanied by a delegation that consists of 30 representatives of the Bavarian economy. The visit will take place on May 10-13. The key domains the delegation aims at are the automotive industry, the IT sector, environment technology and the machine-tools industry. “There is still sufficient potential in Romania, especially in the infrastructure and environment technologies domain,” Secretary of State Pschierer said.
The delegation’s agenda includes political meetings with the Deputy Prime Minister and Regional Development Minister, with secretaries of state from the Economy Ministry and the European Funds Ministry and with the mayor of Cluj-Napoca. Likewise, there will be individual meetings with the representatives of over 100 Romanian companies, meetings organised by AHK Romania in Cluj-Napoca and Bucharest.
The initiative is the result of the upward trend registered in trade between Bavaria and Romania in recent years, Bavaria being the German federal state most active in Romania. With a trade volume of EUR 4.7 bln in 2015, Bavaria is among Romania’s most important trade partners, being fourth in the rankings, behind Italy, Hungary and France.
The Romanian-German Chamber of Commerce and Industry (AHK Romania), as official representation of the German economy and of Bavaria, actively supports Bavarian companies active in Romania, as well as Romanian companies that want to enter the Bavarian market.
