H.E. Mrs. Tatiana Iosiper
Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Romania to Japan
I arrived in Japan In September 2016 to take up my new mission as Ambassador of Romania.
I am thrilled to return to this fascinating country after more than two decades and I am looking forward to bringing my contribution to strengthening the bilateral ties between Romania and Japan.
Our bilateral relations are almost 100 years old and are based on fundamental values and principles, such as democracy and rule of law, as well as shared political, economic and geo-strategic interests. For the next years, we expect to strengthen our constant political dialogue and to develop a strong economic and trade cooperation, as well as a close collaboration in other fields—culture, education, science and technology.
Romania’s economic perspective looks bright and investments in Romania are increasingly attractive, due to the favorable environment, stable economic growth and a dynamic and well educated population. We are happy to see over 70 prominent Japanese companies establishing themselves firmly on the Romanian market, with the creation of 38,000 new jobs, in 50 production facilities all over the country. We hope many others will follow them, contributing to ever stronger economic and commercial bonds. At the same time, we are happy to see more Romanian products becoming available on the local market, with a special mention of our wines, which are increasingly being discovered and appreciated by the Japanese public.
We would also like to invite our Japanese friends to visit Romania, either for business or pleasure. From the Danube Delta and the peaks of the Carpathian Mountains, to the painted monasteries of Bucovina and fortified churches of Transylvania, Romania has many things to offer. Our tourism industry can offer excellent services, which add to the natural beauty, diversity and rich cultural heritage that can be discovered by the Japanese visitors.
