Over 3.5 million Romanians left the country over the last four decades, which made Romania lose EUR 40-50 bln – the money spent by the state to train them until the moment when they found their first job, said Dragos Rosca, the chief of the investment fund Gemisa, quoted by Antena3.ro. “We lost ethnic Germans, Jews, we lost doctors, engineers, artists. They were young people with demographic capacity, which added to the wealth of countries that were already rich,” Rosca said. According to the source, Romania struggles to attract money from the EU, but loses billions through the emigration of its citizens. “The problem is that the business environment cannot influence the government to take measures meant to curb this phenomenon,” Rosca added.
