According to a press release issued by Mures County Council, Dobre gave the example of a 150 million euro Romanian-Japanese investment in a heating station to be built at Fantanele during 2014-16, that is designed to produce 250 megawatt of power.


Prefect Grosu announced Targu Mures-based Medicine and Pharmacy University is assigning more places for the foreign students and 25 of them will be for the Japanese students.


'I have good news for the relations between Targu Mures and Japan. For the 2014-2015 academic year, the Medicine and Pharmacy University has increased the number of places for the students learning in English and particularly for some 20-25 Japanese students who will learn in our university. At the last discussion with Targu Mures Medicine and Pharmacy University rector today, he confirmed the Japanese students' presence in the next academic year', the release quotes Grosu as saying.



The prefect added he will have talks with representatives of Petru Maior University of Targu Mures in order to draw up communication bridges between the Romanian and Japanese students and professors, with the students to chiefly specialise in chemical engineering and automation. (source:
