WHAT IS ALIANȚA?
Based in Washington, DC, Alianța is the national organization of Americans, US companies and other institutions working to strengthen cultural, economic, and security ties between the United States and Romania. Alianța helps Americans and Romanians through education and networking, as well as opportunities which benefit citizens of both nations, improving understanding of Romania and its important strategic partnership with the United States. ALIANȚA is also known as the Romanian-American Alliance.
Since its founding in 2013, it has become respected in the US and Romania for its annual Gala, honoring those who have contributed to the partnership, its business, security and cultural round tables and its community projects in the U.S.
In 2019, it launched a sister organization, Romanian Friends of Alianța.
