Trade Winds—Southeast Europe features a three-day business forum in Bucharest, Romania, plus optional trade mission stops in Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece, and Serbia. At each mission stop, attending companies will meet directly with government leaders, market experts, and pre-vetted potential business partners in the region.
“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.”
The American Chamber of Commerce (AmCham Romania) now represents over 400 members - U.S., international and Romanian companies, with total investments worth over USD 20 billion and generating approximately 250,000 jobs in Romania.
AmCham is firmly committed to facilitating an open dialogue between the business community and the central authorities, promoting transparent solutions and priorities for making Romania a better home for businesses and increasing the country’s economic competitiveness in the region and at European level. AmCham Romania is an accredited member of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and part of the European network – AmChams in Europe.
