“Romania is committed to strengthening cooperation with China and attaches great importance to developing relations with China in various fields,” said Iulia Dangulea, counsellor from Romania’s Ministry of Tourism.

“There is a lot of space for promoting tourism between Romania and China and the Belt and Road Initiative can be a way of boosting tourism in both countries,” added Dangulea.

A documentary film about Beijing will be exhibited during the event for the visitors to experience the beauty and splendour of the capital city, its buildings and beautiful landmarks, including the Great Wall.

People can also enjoy the Beijing tourism photo exhibition, see Chinese calligraphy and take pictures dressed in traditional Chinese costumes. Besides, they can taste some of the best Chinese traditional foods.
