Romania-Greece: Energy is our priority

Greece and Romania have common goals in terms of planning in the energy sector and ensuring energy security, Romanian Prime Minister Viorica Dăncilă said after her meeting with Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras in Bucharest.

“Romania and Greece are the two most powerful economies in southeastern Europe, and our cooperation plays a key role for the stability and growth in the Balkans”, Alexis Tsipras stressed.

“Greece has a significant presence in the business life in Romania, as Greek entrepreneurship has so far created 20,000 jobs, with investments of 4 billion euros in key sectors of the economy, such as communications, infrastructure and the banking sector” , the Greek Prime Minister stressed.

The objective, as was pointed out, is to strengthen this cooperation.
