Romanian Premier submits to EU medium-term economic strategy

Mugur Isarescu on 20 March submitted his country's medium- term economic strategy for joining the EU. On returning to Bucharest from Brussels, Isarescu said the strategy was well received but now "we must prove we can also apply it with perseverance." Foreign Minister Petre Roman is presenting the strategy on 21 March to the Romanian EU Association Committee. Roman told Reuters on 20 March that his country will ask for EU funding to close down mines in the north of the country that are considered ecologically unsafe, including those that recently caused spills into the region's river system.
