The visit programme was organised by Avalon, a local Irish consultancy in Romania, with support from the Embassy's Commercial Attaché. The reception was attended by the State Secretary from the Agriculture Ministry, Mr Alexandru Potor, and local Irish people and Romanians connected with the Romanian agricultural sector as well as representatives of the Romania Ireland Business Association. Ambassador Feely spoke about the importance of the agricultural sector in Ireland, the huge expertise and experience Ireland could bring to foreign partners and the huge potential of the Romanian agricultural sector.

The State Secretary welcomed the Irish delegation and noted that its size (almost 40 members) showed clearly that Romania and Romanian agriculture and the actions and initiatives of the Ministry were well perceived abroad. Mr Hugh Beirne of Avalon made a presentation on the Romanian agriculture sector.
