To mark 25 years of the Strategic Partnership between Romania and the United States of America and look forward to the next decades, AmCham Romania invites members to the kick-off event of the “U.S.–ROMANIA ECONOMIC FORUM: FROM SECURITY TO PROSPERITY” on September 28, 2022, between 08:00 am -12:30 pm at JW Marriott Grand Hotel, Grand Ballroom. The event is organized with the support of the U.S. Embassy in Bucharest and Aspen Institute Romania, and will be followed by a series of roundtables on major policy issues throughout the fall.
While cooperation in the defense and security areas has been the backbone of the Strategic Partnership over the past decades, the full potential of bilateral economic cooperation is yet to be tapped into. In this context, AmCham Romania launches a policy-industry dialogue on the state of the Strategic Partnership and the next steps for boosting Romania’s profile as an investment destination for American businesses and strengthening economic ties between Romania and the United States. The Forum welcomes the participation of high-level representatives of the U.S. administration and of the Romanian authorities, along with members of the business community.
