Ludovic Orban: President Klaus Iohannis, Minister, Your Excellencies, Ambassadors, dear representatives of the companies that built this subway section, dear mass media representatives, director general Gabriel Mocanu and Metrorex management team.

God sometimes arranges things so that they seem coincidental. Coincidentally, Director General Gabriel Mocanu was the Director-General of Metrorex in 2008 and I was the Minister of Transport when the technical and economic indicators for this investment objective were approved, when we negotiated the financing from the European Investment Bank. That was also the year in which the subway development strategy was adopted, which included the extension of subway lines that are today in different phases of construction.

Moreover, I can tell you that 2007 and 2008 were the years in which subway investments were resumed. We completed the subway section from Autostrada Soarelui, with four stations, we also resumed the works and we brought them close to completion, the section from Piata Chibrit to Laromet. It is an honour for me that together with the director-general Mocanu, with whom I have worked hard since 2007, 2008 on this project to have this joy of being present at the commissioning of this very important subway section to the city of Bucharest, very important to the inhabitants of Drumul Taberei and for any other passenger who will need this portion of the underground. We will not stop here. All subsequent works will be carried out at a higher speed, we will be much more careful about all that means the stages of preparation and execution of all contracts for the extension of the metro network. From our point of view, transport infrastructure is an utmost priority and investment in infrastructure in general represent an absolute priority of the Government I am leading. Thank you for being here and once again, I am glad that this subway section has become operational and will serve the Bucharest inhabitants who need the subway network development. I invite President Klaus Iohannis to address you!
