  • We need to work at the European level to encourage commerce and promote innovation  
  • I believe both countries need to find new growth sources and Great Britain is waiting for a tight partnership with Romania in this sense  
  • We see in Romania a stable ally: we work together in Afghanistan, we implement the UN resolution in Libya and the two officials will tackle issues related to the Middle East  
  • Restrictions for Romanians will last until the end of the year when the British government will decide whether they will continue restrictions or not
