Since the troubled times when the first steps were taken to establish official relations between Romania and Finland, not only both our countries, but also Europe as a whole, have undeniably come a long way, undergoing dramatic changes to the better. Close to a century ago our two nations were seeking each other’s support mostly in order to tackle some common external threats. Today we stand side by side, united in a large European family, together with many other partner countries, all sharing the same fundamental values and working together for a peaceful and prosperous European future.
I hope that this Exhibition today will find your appreciation – and, for its part, will contribute to the further strengthening of the ties between our two countries, following the lines that were laid down nine decades ago.
Ambassador Irmeli Mustonen
