Extracts from the EC midday press briefing by Johannes Laitenberger, spokesperson of José Manuel Barroso, on the progress report on the cooperation and verification mechanism with Romania

77 views

The Commission has adopted its third annual assessment on progress in Bulgaria and Romania, on judicial reform and fight against corruption, and in the case of Bulgaria also fight against organised crime. The report addresses an overview of the progress achieved since last year, and an overview over the shortcomings that still need to be addressed. The report shows that the mechanism is working and that it is producing results. There is a reform momentum in both countries, at a technical level. To assist the two countries, and prioritising reform actions, the Commission has presented 21 concrete recommendations for a reform in Bulgaria and 16 recommendations for Romania. When the two countries joined the European Union in 2007, they made commitment to address certain shortcomings in their judicial systems and the fight against corruption. Organised crime was highlighted as a specific concern in the case of Bulgaria, and these commitments were set out in the accession treaty. The Commission established the so-called cooperation and verification mechanism to monitor the progress made. Johannes Laitenberger, spokesperson of José Manuel Barroso, President of the EC, gave a press briefing on the annual progress report on the cooperation and verification mechanism with Romania, on 22/07/2009.
