PM Viorica Dancila met on Thursday, in Bucharest, with European Commission Secretary-General Martin Selmayr and the Head of Cabinet of the President of the Commission, Clara Martinez Alberola. Discussions were focused on preparing the first ever Romanian Presidency of the EU and the Summit in Sibiu on 9 May 2019, European Commission representatives told Business review.

“The meeting between the Secretary-General of the European Commission, Martin Selmayr and the Head of Cabinet of the President of the Commission, Clara Martinez Alberola with Prime Minister Dancila and the members of the Romanian government focused on preparing the first ever Romanian Presidency of the EU and the Summit in Sibiu on 9 May 2019 that should provide a strong future perspective for our Union,” the European Commission responded on Thursday to a Business Review inquiry.

“The two sides discussed the priorities of the upcoming Presidency and how to work together to deliver as many of the 287 pending proposals as possible before the European elections in May 2019,” the EC said.

The EC officials visiting Bucharest have ensured Romanian officials of the full support of the European Commission but called on all political actors in Romania to work as one.

“The Head of Cabinet of President Juncker, Ms Martinez Alberola, assured the Prime Minister that her country can count on the full support of the European Commission during this time to make the Presidency a success,” the European Commission said.

“Secretary-General Selmayr said he expected the Romanian Presidency to be a strong moment of delivery, stability and hope for the European Union.  Finally, he called on all actors in Romania to work as one and demonstrate unity in order to tackle outstanding challenges successfully,” the EC told BR.
