BUCKAREST – Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis is paying his first official visit to Romania on Wednesday.

The Greek premier’s visit to Bucharest marks the strengthening of the Greek economic and business presence in the region and of economic openness, as well as the expansion of bilateral cooperation in a number of areas, such as that of civil protection, for which a separate agreement will be signed.
