BUCHAREST, Romania (AP) - China's prime minister says his country will invest in Romanian nuclear and wind energy production as well as a high-speed railway.
Li Keqiang arrived in Romania Monday a day ahead of a summit with leaders from Central and East European countries.
On the occasion of the visit, Romanian and Chinese officials signed various deals to cooperate in nuclear and thermoelectric energy projects and to resume beef and pork exports. No values for the deals were disclosed.
Romanian exports to China have tripled since 2008 and bilateral commerce this year amounted to $3.27 billion, according to Chinese authorities.
It was the first visit by a Chinese prime minister to Romania in 19 years. Li said the visit "consolidates reciprocal political trust."
