Iceland liberalises labour market for Romanians

The Government of Iceland decided to completely liberalise the labour market for Romanian citizens, starting January 1, 2012, reads a press release issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MAE), which hails the decision.

“By removing the restrictions that limited the access of Romanian citizens to the labour market of Iceland, Reykjavik authorities are sending a clear signal in support of the European principle of free labour force movement and of the values and rights that are fundamental to the European Union,” reads the MAE release.

The measure adopted by Iceland also represents a positive factor for the consolidation of economic relations between the two countries, and a supporting element for the Romanian community of Iceland, adds the source.

Ten EU states still keep in place regulations that restrict the access of Romanian citizens to their labour markets: Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Malta, The Netherlands and the United Kingdom.
