Erbil Governorate in Brasov|
The County Council (CJ) Brasov enjoyed the visit of a delegation from Erbil Region, Kurdistan. 23 members were part of Erbil ? Irak delegation; among those there was the Vice-Governor TAHIR ABDULLAH OTHMAN. The visit is a consequence of the fact that in November 2012 the cooperation and friendship agreement was signed between Aristotel Cancescu, the President of the County Council Brasov and Erbil Governor, Mr. NAWYAD HADI in the presence of the Romanian Foreign Affairs Minister, Titus Corlatean. The protocol mainly aims at supporting the economic relations between the two regions. The delegation has visited Romanian companies wishing to promote their products and services in Kurdistan: Kronospan, FlashNet, Eurostrade SRL, Galii Gallo, ADREM and SIVECO.
"During the work visit in Erbil Region we have met hospitable people willing to cooperate. By signing the Protocol, we have laid the foundations for the collaboration between the two regions. By returning the visit to the representatives of Erbil Region, I am sure we shall consolidate the Protocol. Kurdistan has a high potential and any collaboration can bring mutual benefits. I would be glad us to become a communicating bridge between you and the European Union. I mention that I was surprised to meet many Kurdish people who have studied Romania. Even among the members of this delegation there are persons who have studied here. I shall propose the Ministry of Transports to make a flight route between Otopeni and Erbil." declared Aristotel Cancescu, President of the County Council Brasov.
"The program of the Iraqi delegation includes five days in Brasov. Our goal was for them to discover the county of Brasov, to visit the Historical Centre of Brasov, to meet business people and discover the customs and traditions of the area. We have also taken into account organizing visits to the museums from Brasov in order to acquaint them with the cultural and historical patrimony. We have identified mutually advantageous cooperation opportunities together and we have made plans for the future." declared Mihai Pascu, Vice-President of the County Council Brasov.
"I am for the second time in Brasov and I am thrilled about the efficiency of this visit. The Romanian-Iraqi relations are old and, after the change of the Communist regimes, we wish to revive and develop them. Signing the Protocol is a concrete action, and our visit wishes to lay the foundations for a real collaboration with business people, bringing benefits to the two countries. We have been received with respect and interest both by the representatives of the county, and by businessmen. We have settled collaboration projects and initiated economic relations between Brasov county and Erbil region." declared Vice-Governor TAHIR ABDULLAH OTHMAN.
