A private message would be sent to the appropriate government office in Romania,

 

"The African League is prepared to discuss diplomatic relations with the Kingdom of Greater Romania, in the city of Gaborone. The meeting, hosted by the Federal Union of Southern African Republics, will take place on [Insert RP Date Here for Whenever You Respond]."

 

Advanced security measures would be taken to ensure nothing could possibly go wrong; a full division of Internal Security Troops were posted to active duty in the city. The Office of State Intelligence & Security's political officers within the division were given special warrants to investigate suspicious behavior. The Sir Seretse Khama International Airport would have a terminal secured for foreign dignitary arrival.

Prime Minister Vlasceanu would be sent to Gaborone, in order to discuss the relations with the African League. This would be the first time, a Romanian politician left what the country saw as its sphere of interests, Europe and the Mediterranean. However, there was a world beyond, and Romania better not ignored it. And if one had to have to interact with those beyond the immediate neighbourhood, one better worked with the sensible people.

Prime Minister Vlasceanu would be escorted to the conference room, where a mix of various African and Romanian refreshments awaited them. Once everyone was seated, Minister of Foreign Affairs, Ms. Bafokeng, would begin, "Welcome to Gaborone. Romania has certainly shown itself to be a stable nation in Europe, though admittedly I haven't paid to much attention to the broader politics of Europe. But, getting down to business, what does Romania propose to Africa? Knowing exactly what you and your government want would make a good starting point for discussion."

"I can understand your point.", Vlasceanu would respond, as it seemed that Ms. Bafokeng was not going to waste time with much procedure and was more someone that came straight down to business. "Well, Romania itself has little interest in Africa politically, as long as events in Africa do not cause trouble to Romania. Political cooperation with states in the Mediterranean is something we already work on. However, we do have a certain interest in keeping good relations and in promoting trade between Africa and our country. Romania is rich in ressources itself, but still, trade between Africa and Romania could be a mutually benefitial business, literally. Especially, I would seek to establish ties with the African League for low barriers to trade, in order to promote the trade between us, as to Romania, Africa at the moment seems to be the most stable region, with the greatest potential to be a secure business partner for trade in materials and investments."

"Given Romania's close links to the Mediterranean, as well as your control of the Bosporus, establishment of lowered barriers could be beneficial. I'm sure that the representatives from Alexandria and Carthage would have much to say on trade in Northern Africa, as it would no doubt be their ports which would see the most from such an agreement."

"As far as we see it, Romanian investment most likely would come to areas such as ressources, especially energy ressources in the first instance. PETROM and Rompetrol both would be very much interested in investing into the African League's oil and natural gas sector, which we see as mutually benefitial, given it would secure your countries investments and markets for these ressources, while we find secure suppliers for our own needs and our petrochemical industry. However, also other ressources, which we do not find in Romania itself are naturally of interest, be it minerals or crops. Now, that is not to say we are going to just exploit the raw ressources of your continent, not that we would even think we could do so. But I would think Africa still produces great quantities of goods like coffee and cocoa, which for example we cannot grow at all in Romania, and for fair prices, I would hope such things could be traded. Another form of cooperation we could envision, would be partnerships within the same industry. Romania might not be the greatest industrial nation, but we do have certain industries, which would be looking forward to cooperate with local African industries. For example Automobile Dacia, our largest car manufacturer. Naturally, manufacturers like Dacia have an interest in selling their products also on the African market, but of course, there could also be technical cooperations between industries, which aren't a novel concept and which can help improve the quality of products on both sides of the deal. Overall, it is clear to us, that Romania might not be the largest economy and rather miniscule compared to the combined ressources of Africa, however, we would think that even so, both sides can profit from cooperation." Vlasceanu ended his explanation, wondering whether it was detailed enough. "One might go on about details in which specfic branches there is potential for cooperation, as I estimate there to be more than the few I named. But I would not want to pretent to be an economic expert that knows all industries of Romania and Africa by heart and I think the examples illustrate the point, without need to be more exhaustive in this kind of dialogue. Though, if you got specific questions?"
