The Ambassador said that when returning to Rasnov for the last four years, he noticed that this city transformed from a sleepy city into a lively one.
It is still hard to get not only to Brasov, Rasnov, but to Transylvania in general. There is a great need for infrastructure in Romania, the Ambassador stated.
