The Visa Waiver Program, nuclear energy and defense will be the highlights of the March 24-30 working visit to Washington D.C. of a Senate delegation headed by the institution’s President Florin Citu, the Senate top official said on Wednesday.
“There will be three major objectives, all three country projects: the Visa Waiver Program, the nuclear energy program (…) and defense. Depending on the agenda, there may also be economic meetings, we’ll see,” Citu said at the Senate headquarters.
Asked about the Visa Waiver Program, he replied: “We will use all the levers the Romanian state has to implement this system in Romania as soon as possible. The signals are good. Mrs. Vice President Kamala Harris too spoke about this program during her recent visit to Romania. As always, Romania is doing everything in its power to eliminate all doubts and have this program implemented for the Romanian citizens as well.”
Florin Citu will lead a Senate delegation on a working visit to Washington between March 24 and 30, with meetings scheduled with representatives of the U.S. Legislature, the business environment, as well as with the Romanian community in the area.
According to an internal memorandum presented last week in the Standing Bureau of the Senate, Citu will be accompanied by Senators Robert Cazanciuc and Radu Oprea (Social Democratic Party), Alina Gorghiu and Roberta Anastase (National Liberal Party), Ion Narcis Mircescu (Save Romania Union) and Lorand Turos (Hungarian Democratic Union of Romania).
