According to the same source, Andrew McCall discussed about the stage of implementation of the Ford investment in Craiova, including about the creation of almost 1,700 jobs that the company already announced.
During the meeting, Prime Minister Tudose underscored the importance of the car industry for the Romanian economy, both from the perspective of its weight in the development of the GDP and from a social perspective, through the creation of new jobs both directly and through the economic engagement effect.
