Facing Security Challenges in Central & Eastern Europe

On May 8, AmCham Defense & Security Committee organized a meeting on Facing Security Challenges in Central & Eastern Europe. Our guests were from the Romanian Embassy in Poland, Mr. Ovidiu Dranda, Romanian Ambassador, Colonel Romeo Tabirca, Defense Attaché and Mr. Botond Kovessi, Economic Counsellor. An interesting discussion highlighted the many parallels between the situation of Poland and Romania as regards security. We discussed defense and security issues on the crossroads, including Romania’s role on the Eastern Flank for NATO and EU; Energy and security in the Black Sea region; and multi-national defense partnership.
