Report by Mr. Valentin Stoica, IRF Ambassador in Romania

Since my appointment in 2008, I have striven to give the position of IRF Ambassador to Romania more and more visibility within the roads infrastructure industry. The main objectives of my activity have been to promote IRF among potential partners that may be willing to join our organisation; emphasising the benefits brought to a company or institution through such membership; and facilitating communication between members of IRF in Romania and the Secretariat in Geneva.
