Our guests were welcomed with a presentation of the history of the IPA, as well as the history of IPA Romania, with an emphasis on the evolution over the last two years and on the external activities of our section, including the organisation of the IPA Hosting Sections’ Meeting in October 2018, the participation of the Romanian delegation in the 63rd IPA World Congress in the Netherlands in September 2018, and the participation of the President of IPA Romania, Mr. Florin Olaru, in the 26th Meeting of the Mediterranean Countries from 16-19 May 2019, held by our Italian friends, in Garda.

The group from the IPA Fulda branch consisted of 9 IPA members, active and retired police officers from the Federal German Police and from the State Police. Along with their wives, they were on a circuit through Estonia, Lithuania and Romania.

In Bucharest, our friends were delighted to visit the Parliament Palace, plus the old town centre, and had the opportunity to taste a traditional dinner at the “Carul cu Bere” (The Beer Carriage), where the most popular dish was cabbage rolls with polenta, accompanied by Romanian beer.

Our guests enjoyed the company of Mrs. Mirea Mariana, President of IPA Region 25 Bucharest (General Directorate of Anti-Corruption), and also the support of IPA Region 4 Bucharest (General Directorate of the Municipality Police of Bucharest), with whom they had the opportunity to visit Section 1 of the Police of the city of Bucharest.

We also invited our friends to the headquarters of the Romanian section, where they were able enjoy a selection of drinks, cakes and fruit - the Romanian cherries were a firm favourite!

On departure, our guests stated that they appreciated the efforts of the Romanian IPA staff, without whom this visit would not have been possible.
