A U.S. Department of Commerce trade mission of 22 U.S. aerospace and defense companies are visiting Bucharest, Nov. 12-15 with the goal of forming new trade relationships. During the mission, U.S. firms will be introduced to potential partners looking to source U.S. technologies and services for Romania’s growing defense market. The mission, led by Commerce Deputy Assistant Secretary for Europe and Eurasia, David De Falco (photo), is the first leg of a trade mission that will also visit Poland later this week.

The delegation represents some of the most innovative U.S. aerospace and defense companies in the areas of maintenance and avionics, logistics and cargo handling, satellites, integrated surveillance, training and support services, radar systems, computers and displays, unmanned aircraft systems, cybersecurity, and more.

“We are enthusiastic about building new collaborative partnerships that contribute to the security of Romania while promoting mutual economic growth,” said De Falco. “We must continue to engage with the Romanian public and private sectors as they look to modernize the Romanian defense industry through international partnerships, and U.S. defense and aerospace firms are well-equipped to offer the latest in cutting-edge technological solutions.”

The mission is particularly timely, given the impact of the Russian invasion of Ukraine on Romania and the region. During the mission, U.S. companies will gain market insights, make industry contacts, solidify business strategies, and advance specific projects. To this end, U.S. mission participants will engage in over 250 one-on-one matchmaking meetings with potential Romanian buyers, partners and government agencies as arranged by the U.S. Commercial Service at the U.S. Embassy in Romania.

Mission delegates will also participate in plenary sessions that showcase opportunities in the U.S.-Romania strategic partnership, attend two networking events, and tour local aerospace and defense production companies.

The U.S. Commercial Service is the trade promotion unit of the U.S. Department of Commerce’s International Trade Administration (ITA). It offers business matchmaking and other services that bring together prospective international buyers with U.S. exporters.

Romanian businesses interested in finding U.S. goods and services suppliers are encouraged to contact the U.S. Commercial Service team in Romania.
