The government will approve this week a 1 billion euro allocation for the expansion of Romania's gas networks, Deputy Prime Minister Raluca Turcan announced on Tuesday. According to the cited official, Romania's current gas connection rate is 32 percent of localities connected, and the central authorities want to raise it to 70 percent.

"The Orban Government will approve this week one billion euros to increase Romania's mains gas connectivity from the almost shameful 32 percent at present to about 70 percent," Turcan said.
