TransMin Grindeau: Building underground line 6 shows the good economic relations between Romania, Japan

Building the underground line no. 6 shows the good progress of economic relations between Romania and Japan, Sorin Grindeanu, Minister of Transport and Infrastructure, said on Facebook, on Thursday, at the end of his meeting with Japanese ambassador to Bucharest Hiroshi Ueda.

“I met this morning at the Ministry of Transport with His Excellency, the Ambassador of Japan in Bucharest, Hiroshi Ueda. We discussed bilateral cooperation relations in the field of transport and focused on projects of strategic importance. (…) Another important project for the relationship between Romania and Japan is the construction of the underground line no. 6, which connects Bucharest with the Henri Coanda International Airport. We appreciated that this project shows the smooth running of our economic relations,” said Sorin Grindeanu, according to Agerpres.

The Minister of Transport reminded that the bridge over the Danube from Braila is another project in which Japanese specialists are involved.

“The suspension bridge over the Danube in the Braila area is also a project that involves a Italian-Japanese consortium, Astaldi (Italy) – IHI Infrastructure System (Japan), ” Sorin Grindeanu said.

At the same time, the Minister of Transport mentioned that another topic of discussion between him and the Ambassador of Japan was the PNRR (National Recovery and Resilience Plan).

“We also talked about the National Recovery and Resilience Plan and the opportunities it offers. Japan is one of Romania’s main economic partners in the Asia Pacific area and is the first Asian investor in our country. Romania and Japan have traditional relations based on shared values and on the convergence of our interests in international matters. Today we also highlighted the fact that the Romanian-Japanese diplomatic relations have already reached 100 years,” concluded Sorin Grindeanu.
