The private environment is the one that creates jobs, innovates and works to reduce gaps compared to other EU countries, Angela Cristea, head of the EC Representation in Romania said on Tuesday in a press conference. Thus, she pointed out, Romania’s economic growth engine is the private environment.
“This is the main objective that we have, and this is what citizens expect after joining the European Union, to live as abroad. Some of them have no patience, and they go out and others stay here and work so that they can live better in Romania as well,” Cristea stated.
She also pointed out that there are net contributing states to the EU budget that want higher research and security concerns than cohesion. According to her, European citizens express their solidarity by transferring funds from the EU budget to countries that still have gaps.
“As European Commissioner Corina Cretu said, this cohesion policy, that is being implemented, is the most concrete expression of a fundamental value of the European Union, namely the solidarity,” Cristea said.
According to her, neither in Romania, nor at European level, the procedures for accessing European funds are not simple.
