On 6 August 2014, the Commission adopted the Partnership Agreement with Romania, paving the way for close to €5 billion (current prices) in European Social Fund (ESF) funding in the next seven years.
Komissio ehdotti tänään, että sopimusta Euroopan unionin lisätystä investointiosuudesta Kreikalle, Kyprokselle ja Portugalille jatkettaisiin vielä kahdella vuodella ja että Romanialle ja Slovakialle annettaisiin lisää aikaa käyttää koheesiorahoitusta.
A meeting in Bucharest gathered policy makers, Romanian authorities and a number of NGOs promoting Roma integration, to discuss steps and actions undertaken to better use EU funds for Roma inclusion, following the Roma high level events that took place in Romania in October 2010.
