Boosting dialogue at national, regional and local authorities’ level is a priority, the Deputy Prime Minister Sevil Shhaideh, Minister of Regional Development, Public Administration and European Funds said on Thursday, at a meeting with the ambassador of the People’s Republic of China to Romania, Xu Feihong.
“Romania and China are traditional partners, which is why we are interested in boosting dialogue at national, regional and local level that are directly responsible for the implementation of projects in priority fields for citizens. Among the major projects we mention are: infrastructure and energy, and the small and medium-size projects refer to investments in industrial parks and other investment opportunities in fields with impact upon local communities,” said Sevil Shhaideh, according to a release sent to AGERPRES on Thursday.
Likewise, the deputy PM stressed that a relevant objective for Romania’s foreign policy, included in the ruling programme, is the strengthening of the Romanian-Chinese Ample Friendship and Cooperation Partnership on politics, economy and inter-human exchanges.
The two officials have also expressed appreciation over the results of the Romania-China Business Opportunities Forum organised in Bucharest in June and the availability to boost collaboration, in particular through the two countries’ chambers of commerce.
Another target is the boosting of the experience swaps between the local administrations in Romania and China and the promotion of the local interest projects.
