Romania’s project at Eurovision has become a real ambassador of our country, during the 25 years from our first participation. This is why we are so happy to be here, in Tel Aviv, and to continue our collaboration with ICR in order to promote Romania’s project to the representatives of the local community and to the accredited journalists at the Eurovision. Good luck Ester Peony, go Romania go! has Smaranda Vornicu-Shalit declared in the end of the event.
