Sweden opened its second consulate in Romania, after Timisoara, to cater to the needs of large number of Swedish citizens and businesses in Transylvania area. The official opening was celebrated on 6th of June, on the occasion of the National Day of Sweden. The inauguration ceremony took place at Ecolor headquarters, where the new consulate will operate, in the presence of H.E. Ms. Anneli Lindahl Kenny, the ambassador of Sweden in Bucharest.
“I am very happy to open a Swedish Honorary Consulate in Cluj Napoca today. It means that we will be able to be much more active in one of the most dynamic regions in Romania, which also is a destination for large amount of Swedish investment. More and more Swedish companies are discovering this part of Romania. But Cluj and Transylvania is also one of the most popular destinations for Swedish students in Romania. These students, of which the vast majority studies medicine and dentistry, are, when graduating, very important for our health system. Through their experience here they will create strong networks and links to Romania – something that helps to further expand the bilateral relations between our countries.”- said H.E. Ms. Anneli Lindahl Kenny.
Carl Widell, general manager of Ecolor company, named the Honorific Consul of Sweden in Cluj Napoca, expressed his gratitude for this honour and therewith his full support for the Swedish community, both businesses and Swedish people and his openness for anyone wishing to learn more about Sweden.
