Romania’s Government adopted a Memorandum mandating the Permanent Representation of Romania to the European Union to start negotiations for renting its new office in Brussels, which will be used in 2019, when Romania will hold the presidency of the EU Council.
The building is located on Avenue Cortenbergh at the number 107, reports local News.ro.
Choosing this location took into account the price, the building’s surface, the state of the property, the facilities and utilities, the number of parking spaces as well as the proximity to the EU Council, according to Romania’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MAE). Slovakia used the same building as its headquarters during its presidency of the EU Council in the second half of last year.
Romania will take over the EU Council presidency in January 2019.
