He urged Romanians in Uganda to feel free in Uganda.

The Romanian Ambassador to Kenya, Julia Pataki said it is going to strengthen economic ties among the two countries.

 "The new embassy will focus on promoting tourism, enabling access to educational programmes including scholarships, professional development and vocational training and educational exchange programmes," she added.
