Also in attendance was Cluj County Deputy Prefect Zoltan Gyorke, Cluj-Napoca Mayor Emil Boc, and representatives of the business and university communities of Cluj. "This year, Romania celebrates the Centennial of its Greater Union, the model of inter-culturalism for which we are internationally renowned, the present traditions and aspects, including the symbolic places in our memory and culture," said senior official for inter-institutional relations Maria-Magdalena Grigore in a message from Foreign Minister Teodor Melescanu. One of the objectives of this visit is the promotion of Romanian industry and research. Thus, the heads of diplomatic missions accredited in Romania were welcomed by representatives of Farmec SA pharmaceutical company, where they were introduced to the latest products launched by the company. The Turda salt mine, ranked among the most interesting tourist locations in the world, was on the list of facilities toured by the diplomats. There, the delegation was welcomed by mine officials and the mayor of Turda, Cristian-Octavian Matei. "The visit is an opportunity for the discovery of Romania, of its unique natural landscapes, its rich history, its tangible and intangible heritage, while also having an important economic component in terms of investment opportunities in the region," according to MAE. MAE organises an information visit to the counties of Cluj, Bihor, Arad and Timis for the heads of diplomatic missions accredited in Bucharest and their representatives, October 18 -21. The visit is part of the events dedicated to the WWI Centennial and the Greater Union Centennial.
