The officials discussed the possibility to materialize the twinning agreement signed in 1993 between the County Council Brasov and Liaoning Government, through the establishment of Confucius Centre project in Brasov. It would be the second such centre opened in Romania. The project is supported by the Embassy of China and the Chinese governmental agency Hanban who has agreed in principle to this effect.
President Cancescu promised he will directly support the establishment of ?Confucius? centre, hosted by ?Transilvania? University as result of a bilateral cooperation protocol. The head of the county government would also like a greater involvement of China in the investments field in Romania.
