The mission will visit Poland and Romania, where U.S. firms will have access to business development opportunities across the Central and Eastern European region. Participating firms will gain market insights, make industry contacts, solidify business strategies, and advance specific projects, with the goal of increasing U.S. exports of products and services to Central and Eastern Europe. The mission will include customized one-on-one business appointments with pre-screened potential buyers, agents, distributors and joint venture partners; meetings with state and local government officials and industry leaders; and networking events.

Retail in Romania: Test your products in the Romanian market
The U.S. Embassy in Romania invites you to participate in a marketing event, Retail in Romania, that will bring your products directly to 20 million Romanian consumers. American quality is highly appreciated in Romania and we have partnered with the country’s largest retailer, Media Galaxy (Altex), to test new U.S. products in its chain of stores. This is a tried-and-true program that we have used elsewhere and are now bringing to Europe, starting with Romania, to coincide with Independence Day in the United States. This is just the beginning, as this opportunity could open the gates to potential distribution throughout Southeast Europe.

Under the Discover America logo, Lucia gave out materials provided by NYC Go to promote NYC as one of the TOP 3 destinations visited by Slovaks. Several local media broadcasted the information on “Land of possibilities” for the first time in public.
