The Romanian Government approved at its sitting on April 16 the setting up of a National Office for Traditional Products, a body to be responsible to the Agriculture and Rural Development Ministry and to have its headquarters in the central Brasov city.
"The office will back the Romanian producers to draw up the required paperwork for the registration and promotion of the Romanian traditional organic products with a view to gaining their name protection in the European Union market.
The office will provide technical assistance to drawing up projects for the promotion of the Romanian traditional organic products", Government’s spokeswoman Camelia Spataru said.
The office is also tasked with the promotion of the image of the traditional products in the news media, she added.
The personnel recruitment for this institution will begin in two weeks, Spataru said, explaining that such personnel will include civil servants and contractual staff; the office will begin to actually operate in two months at the most, she announced.
