Romania plans to get as many European funds as possible for projects in Danube Delta


Premier Victor Ponta on Monday, during a meeting with European Commissioner for Maritime Affairs and Fisheries Maria Damanaki, agreed on the road to take for spending by the end of the year the sum of 40 million euros allocated to Romania, for projects in the Danube Delta included.

'I had a meeting with Commissioner Damanaki, who also gave us good news of unblocking the fisheries operational programme and the money that has already come to this country and, especially, what we have to do till the end of the year for us to use the 40 million euros, for projects in the Danube Delta included. The Commissioner too was in the Danube Delta with some ministers and I want us to promote the Danube Delta for all the European Commissioners, Commissioner Ciolos too was there yesterday, I want us to get as many European funds as possible as it is more difficult to get money from the budget. But when it comes to European funds, there is still an important space,' said the Premier in Parliament at the end of the meeting with the European Commissioner.

Victor Ponta added that he planned to have the same kind of meeting with other European Commissioners too and emphasized the fact that this was 'a good sign' and that Romania 'counts' in all important talks all over Europe.

'Of course there will be an extremely important talk on the digital agenda; we shall have a meeting in the days to come not only with ministers, but also with the representatives of the IT industry in Romania. With the very purpose of establishing the way in which Romania will be one of the first countries when it comes to the implementation of reforms in the digital field. We have an extraordinary potential. Very many from Romania already work with American companies, with European companies and the liberalization of the digital market is an advantage for Romania,' also said the Prime Minister.
