The visit began at the bust of Ronald Reagan, erected in 2015 in the courtyard of the City Hall Civil Marriage Division in Ploiesti. The statue was commissioned at the initiative of the Cultural-Historical Society, Mr. Mircea Cosma and that of Stefan Minovici. The vice president of the Prahova County Council, Ludmila Sfirloaga, together with the Director of the Chancellery of the Prefect, Sebastian Cursaru, accompanied the delegation during the ceremony, where Stefan Minovici lay a bouquet of tulips at the monument.
The visit continued at the office of the President of Prahova County Council, Mr. Bogdan Toader. Also attending were Senator Stefan Radu Oprea and Representative Ion Razvan Ursu. During the meeting, multiple issues related to the significance of the US firms present in the Industrial Park Ploiesti were discussed, especially the continuous growth of the economic bilateral relations between Romania and the United States. New locations for business development were proposed to be created within the Ploiesti Industrial Park South, namely Mizil, Ciorani and Lady Pond. It was agreed that a protocol should be signed on strategic, medium and long-term collaboration between the Prahova County Council and the Romanian American Business Council in order to consolidate and expand future relationships. Mr. Minovici was offered the "Romania 100" booklet and a collection of books about the history of the war for Romania, including the volumes "Intregitorii" (“The Unifiers”) to be submitted to the Romanian Library in New York.
