"The Bucharest International Technical Fair has become a tradition. This year, at its 31st edition, TIB seams to announce the forthcoming Romanian integration in the European Union. A 15 per cent increase in the number of participants, no less than 1 200 exhibitors—this is an impressive business card for any international fair. It doesn’t take long to figure out the motivation of such sizeable participation in TIB 2005. It is obvious that Romania’s performance over the past five years, the sustainable economic growth of a substantial over 5 per cent of the GDP, and the forthcoming EU integration on 1 January 2007 definitely stimulate the business community to make offers", said Romanian President Traian Basescu welcomed TIB.
