Romanian Prime Minister Mihai Tudose and several ministers attend, during October 18-20, the biggest trade promotion event organized annually by the US Department of Commerce - Trade Winds, tenth edition.
Approximately 100 US companies will come to Bucharest and will have contacts with over 50 Romanian companies, an opportunity for these companies to develop joint projects.
"The US Department of Commerce's initiative to hold the 10th edition of Trade Winds in Romania and four other South Eastern European countries - Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece and Serbia - demonstrates the importance the US Administration attaches to this region and especially our country. The Romanian Government has approached this important economic forum with due importance and together with my team I have responded positively to all requests received from the US Embassy and the Commerce Department, "said Prime Minister Mihai Tudose.
Among US companies that will participate in the tenth edition of Trade Winds are both established companies such as IBM, Patriot - Raytheon, Kestral, Harris Corporation (space intelligence), SAS Institute (software), Perry Baromedical Corporation (medical equipment manufacturer) , as well as US SMEs that are of particular interest to us, especially from the point of view of the transfer of know-how and innovation.
“Trade Winds is an incredible business opportunity for every member of our delegation, and we simply could not pull the mission off without support from sponsors,” said U.S. Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Global Markets and Director General of the U.S. and Foreign Commercial Service Erin Walsh. “Trade Winds has a solid record of advancing the U.S. economic relationship with foreign markets, and we are proud to have the American Chamber of Commerce in Romania- AmCham Romania supporting us in Southeast Europe this year.”
