Czech president sees business opportunities in Romania

Czech president Miloš Zeman has said on a visit to Romania that Czech firms could play a major role in building the country’s transport and energy infrastructure and new power production capacity. Turning to foreign relations, Zeman said that Romania feared for the future of the former Soviet state, Moldova. Fears were based not just on the possibility of invasion but also the fact that the country had not built up sufficient independent energy capacity and links to the European Union. The Czech head of state is due to visit Moldova on Thursday and Friday.
