The Chinese companies are still interested in Romania’s major infrastructure projects, according to Ion Ariton, Romania’s minister of Economy. This statement was made, this week, during the meeting of a mixed Governmental commission, gathering both Romanian and Chinese counterparts who assessed the economic cooperation between the two countries.

Ariton mentioned that in the first eight months of this year, Romania’s exports to China increased by 33 percent. The Chinese vice-minister, Wang Chao, added that Romania has become the fourth commercial partner of China in the CEE (Central and Eastern Europe).

Romania’s Economy minister mentioned the major projects that will be delivered in partnership with Chinese companies. The Tarnita-Lapustesti hydro power plant is of interest for China Ghezouba and China Sinohydro, while the reactors 3 and 4 of Cernavoda nuclear power plant could also involve China Guandong Nuclear Power Group, the company that signed the confidentiality agreement with Nuclearelectrica, this week.

China Dalian International Holdings and China Communications Construction Company are interested in building the Bucharest bypass road, while China National Agricultural Group Corporation is interested in the Siret-Baragan irrigation channel. In fact, the Chinese company will sent a delegation in Romania later this month.

Ion Ariton also invited the Chinese companies to participate in other projects for the energy and infrastructure sector: highway sections of Sibiu-Pitesti and Comarnic-Brasov, the Braila Bridge and the modernization of Constanta port.

All the projects will be awarded to Chinese companies in accordance with the European legislation.

The Chinese vice-president stated that the government will encourage Chinese companies to invest in Romanian projects.
