Canada‘s Minister of International Trade Stockwell Day headed the Canadian delegation. Also attending was Canada’s Ambassador in Bucharest Marta Moszczenska.
Nemirschi also approached aspects of the Nuclear Power Station of Cernavoda (south-east), stressing that there were proposals that the water cooling the reactors, which reaches high temperature, should be transported to Constanta (Romanian Black Sea port) and used for heating.
The Canadian party stressed there was an open communication between the Canadian Government, the relevant companies and their host-countries so that the possible problems could be solved at the intergovernmental level.
