During the meeting, the Minister of Education, Ligia Deca, emphasized the efforts made by the Romanian Government to increase the number of scholarships: "The contribution of the Romanian side in relation to the funds allocated by the American side for the operation of the Fulbright Program and the development of university exchanges has increased considerably. We are glad to we announce that the budget allocated to Fulbright scholarships has increased year by year, reaching the point that, in 2024, we will have a considerable and auspicious increase".

The representatives of the State Department expressed openness to cooperation and exchange of experience in this field.
