The cooperation within the EU Strategy for Danube region (SUERD) and the dual learning system were the analyzed topics within the eighth session of the Mixed Governmental Commission Romania-Baden-Württemberg, developed in Germany, according to Agerpres.
“It is a period when we build a closer relation with Germany more than never and the topics on the Commission’s agenda, from the cooperation within EU Strategy for Danube region, up to the dual learning projects, are topics that are in both parties’ interest. I am convinced that we can make important steps in common projects development, because Romania is firmly decided to go on, working closely with Germany and Baden-Württemberg land, and the framework proposed by SUERD is a generous one, “ says Costin Borc, the minister of Economy.
Moreover, Borc said that currently, as a result of the reorganization at the Ministry that he coordinates, there is the Foreign Investigation and Exterior Trade Department, that manages the economic relations with all the partners, a department that will soon open an attached office at Stuttgart and that triggers in this way the commercial relations of Romania with foreign partners.
The Mixed Commission was preceded by a reunion at experts and secretaries level from both countries, in which were analyzed the stage of bilateral cooperation and the ways of intensifying this collaboration through the online platform “izmyshare” made and proposed by Germany.
The volume of trade between Romania and Baden-Württemberg land reached EUR 4.34 billion at the end of 2015, the Romanian exports registering a growth of 2.41 percent compared with 2014 (from EUR 2.18 billion to EUR 2.23 billion).
