Romanian PM receives congratulation letter from his British counterpart Theresa May
The Brexit negotiations and the development of the bilateral economic relations were the topics discussed on Tuesday at the meeting of Prime Minister Mihai Tudose with UK Ambassador in Bucharest Paul Brummell.
According to a Government release, in the Brexit context, Prime Minister Tudose underscored that the Government wants to closely work with the UK, so that the rights of Romanians studying, working and living in the UK be respected and protected, and the bilateral economic relations rise up to the level of the excellent political collaboration between the two states.
“The UK is and will remain Romania’s partner and friend. I am confident that we’ll do a very applied work for the Romanians in the UK not to be affected by Brexit. At the same time, Romania provides a stable, friendly business environment, fiscal facilities for investors, therefore we have all premises for the development of the economic relations,” the head of Government said.
In his turn, Ambassador Brummell handed to the Romanian PM a congratulation letter from his British counterpart Theresa May. The British diplomat underscored that it is important that the Brexit negotiations have positive results both for the UK and for the European Union, and appreciated the contribution of the community of Romanians to the British society.
The Romanians working, studying and living in the UK are welcome. The best Romanian students come to the UK, very good doctors and engineers work there, who have an important contribution to our economy, the Ambassador said.
At the same time, the British diplomat highlighted the interest in encouraging investments and bilateral commercial exchanges, noting the fact that British investments have been concentrated more in Bucharest, although there is a development potential in the rest of the country as well.
He brought to mind that branches of the Romanian-British Chamber of Commerce have been established in Cluj and Timisoara, which will provide a new dynamics to the economic relations.
Another topic of the discussion referred to Romania’s candidacy to the member status of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), a context in which Prime Minister Tudose asked for the UK’s support to endorse Romania’s candidacy, taking into account its important role in this international organisation.
