HE, Mr. FUAD KOKALY, Ambassador of Palestina encourages Palestinian investors to invest in Romania in real estate and infrastructure.   

English and Romanian Version


There, are many collaborations in the economic field between Palestine and Romania, historically speaking between Palestine and Romania there have been trade relations since the interwar period, Romania opened a trade office in Jaffa in 1926, in order to coordinate citrus exports to Romania. We further develop our economic relations in several fields as tourism, trade, agriculture, infrastructure and real estate activities.

We develop activities in the field of food industry, tourism, trade and real estate activities, there are companies of Palestinian citizens in Romania that develop these activities, and in the agricultural field Palestine imports live animals (cattle and sheep) for the Palestinian market.

For the Palestinian market, an export of consumer products can be developed, as well as Romanian investments in the Palestinian infrastructure.

From Palestine, you can import fresh and processed agricultural products, marble and consumer products like olive oil, olives, fresh dates and olive wood carvings used for religious art and not only.

Olive wood carving is an ancient tradition in Palestine that has continued until now. It involves the skillful chiseling of olive wood and is most common in the Bethlehem region. The tradition of making the handicrafts began in the 4th century under Byzantine rule in Bethlehem, which continues to be the main city that produces the craft, following the construction of the Church of the Nativity.

Since then the tradition has been passed on generation by generation and is dominated by the descendants of the original local carvers. These products are well-known and appreciated abroad and also by the tourists that visit the Holy Land.

From my experience as Ambassador of the State of Palestine in Romania, I have met willingness in all my official meetings from the central and local authorities to develop economic relations between Romania and Palestine.

In Palestine there are many graduates of Romanian universities, and they work in the public and private field and actively participate in the economic and social development of Palestine. We have here in Romania, Palestinian businessmen who invest in several fields like medical, commercial and tourism. There are many Palestinian doctors working in the Romanian health system, public and private. Between Romania and Palestine there is a governmental commission that coordinates economic, political and educational activities. The Commission meets regularly to boost cooperation between our countries in all areas.

At the local level so far we have concluded 8 twinning agreements between the mayors of Palestine and Romania, including Bethlehem City Hall. These agreements open other horizons for Palestinian and Romanian businessmen in order to identify investment opportunities at the local level and play an important role bringing together those interested in investing in various fields.

My piece of advice for businessmen from Palestine and Romania is to focus investment activities in areas such as tourism, food industry, agriculture and medicine. In Romania there are many investment opportunities.

From my position as Ambassador, I will encourage Palestinian investors to invest in Romania and in real estate and infrastructure.

Exista multe colaborari in domeniul economic intre Palestina si Romania, istoric vorbind, intre Palestina si Romania au existat relatii comerciale inca din perioada interbelica, Romania a deschis un oficiu comercial in orasul Jaffa in anul 1926 cu scopul de a coordona exporturile de citrice catre Romania.

Dezvoltam in continuare relatiile nostre economice in mai multe domenii, turism, comert, agricultura, infrastructra si activitati imobiliare.Dezvoltam activitati in domeniul industriei alimentare, turism, comert si activitati imobiliare, sunt firme ale cetatenilor palestinieni in Romania care dezvolta aceste activitati, iar in domeniul agricol, Palestina importa animale vii (bovine si ovine) pentru piata din Palestina.

Pentru piata din Palestina se poate dezvolta un export de produse de larg consum, de asemnea se poate dezvolta investitii romanesti in infrastructura din Palestina. Din Palestina puteti importa produse agricole proaspete si prelucrate, marmura si produse de larg consum, cum ar fi ulei de masline, masline, curmale proaspete si sculpturi in lemn de maslin utilizate pentru arta religioasa si nu numai. Sculptura in lemn de maslin este o traditie straveche in Palestina care continua pana in prezent. Aceasta implica sculptarea abila a lemnului de maslin si este cea mai frecventa in regiunea Betleemului.

Traditia fabricarii artizanatului a inceput in secolul al IV-lea, sub stapanirea bizantina din Betleem – care continua sa fie principalul oras care produce mestesugul – rezultand construirea Bisericii Nasterii Domnului.

De atunci traditia a fost transmisa generatie cu generatie si este dominata de descendentii sculptorilor locali originali.Aceste produse sunt foarte cunoscute si apreciate in strainatate, precum si de catre turistii care vizitează Tara Sfanta.

Din Palestina se poate importa produse agricole proaspete si prelucrate, marmura si produse de larg consum.

Din experienta mea ca Ambasador al Statului Palestina in Romania, am intalnit la toate intalnirile mele oficiale o bunavointa din partea autoritatiilor centrale si locale de a dezvolta relatiile economice intre Romania si Palestina.       In Palestina sunt multi absolventi ai universitatilor romanesti, ei lucreaza in domeniul public si privat si participa activ la dezvoltarea economico-sociala din Palestina, avem aici in Romania oameni de afaceri palestinieni care investesc in mai multe domenii, medical, comercial si turism. Sunt multi medici palestinieni care lucreaza in sistemul de sanatate romanesc, public si privat. Intre Romania si Palestina exista o comisie guvernamentala care coordoneaza activitatile economice, politice si educationale. Comisia se intalneste periodic pentru a impulsiona cooperarea intre tarile noastre in toate domeniile.

La nivelul local, pana acum am incheiat 8 acorduri de infratire intre primarii din Palestina si Romania printre care Primaria Betleem, aceste acorduri deschid alte orizonturi pentru oamenii de afaceri palestinieni si romani in vederea identificarii unor oportunitati de investitie la nivel local, ele joaca un rol important, de apropiere a celor interesati sa investeasca in varii domenii.

Sfatul meu pentru oamenii  de afaceri din Palestina si Romania este sa concenteze activitatile de investitie in domenii precum, turism, industria alimentara, agricultura si medicina. In Romania exista multe oportunitati de investitie. Din pozitia mea ca Ambasador, ii voi incuraja pe investitorii palestinieni sa investeasca in Romania si in domeniul imobiliar si infrastructura.
