Vilnius – Romania believes that the entire eastern flank of the European Union and NATO must be connected by road and rail, from the Baltic Sea to the Black Sea. President Klaus Iohannis insisted on this issue at the summit of the Three Seas Initiative in Vilnius. He also spoke about the Initiative’s strategic partners, Japan being one of them. Iohannis had a bilateral meeting with the Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, on which occasion he reiterated the firm support that Romania gives to Ukraine on all relevant levels, as well as the determination to strengthen cross-border cooperation in the field of energy security. The Three Seas initiative offers a platform for collaboration between EU and non-EU states, with benefits including increasing the quality of life of the citizens and stimulating opportunities for multidirectional cooperation. The previous edition of the Initiative took place in Bucharest, and the next one will be in Poland.

 

Barometer – Half of the Romanians believe that the current economic situation in their region is rather good than bad, while 13% think that it is very bad, according to a Eurobarometer of the European Commission.

The figures are close to the European average, which also includes housing concerns.

 

Banking – The governor of the Central Bank of the Republic of Moldova (BNM), Anca Dragu, said the Stock Exchange in Chişinău stands good chances to develop and Moldova could be a market for the foreign companies that are already in Romania.

The talks focused on the opportunity of the double listing of the Moldovan companies at stock exchanges abroad and on transaction mechanisms for bonds and other financial instruments.
