The Government will approve in a fast-track procedure a set of measures for Romania’s preparation and participation as a guest of honor in the ‘Europalia 2019’ international arts festival and for the unfolding of the Romania – France 2018 – 2019 cultural season, PM Viorica Dancila said on Wednesday in the opening of the government meeting.
“These two projects will contribute to internationally promoting the image of national culture. As you know, Europalia is one of the world’s most important arts festivals and is considered Belgium’s largest scale cultural event. It is organized every two years under the aegis of the Belgian Royal Family, in Brussels and neighbouring areas and in other countries as well – France, the Netherlands, Luxembourg and Germany. The 2019 edition that will see Romania participating as a guest of honor will take place between October 2019 – January 2020,” Dancila said.
The Premier also mentioned that the organization of the Romania – France cultural season is a “priority bilateral project for both the French and the Romanian side, that overlaps with the period of Romania’s holding the Presidency of the Council of the EU, with the centennial anniversary of the 1918 Great Union and the celebration of the end of WWI.”
