Romania and Sweden will, in the near future sign a Common Declaration on the social policies that will provide the framework for achieving common projects in the labour and social areas, swapping experience and good practices as well as easing the co-working of the local Romanian and Swedish authorities, the Labour Ministry said in a release to Agerpres on Friday.

The decision to sign the declaration was made following a visit paid by Labour Minister Rovana Plumb to Sweden on Thursday and Friday, on which occasion the Romanian official had bilateral meetings with Swedish Minister of Social Affairs Annika Strandhall, Swedish Minister for the Children, Elderly and Equal Chances Asa Regner and the State Secretary for Employment at the Swedish Labour Ministry, Irene Wennemo.

‘The topics tackled by the Romanian and Swedish officials from the angle of the consolidation of the bilateral relations targeted the freedom of movement of the member states’ citizens in the EU space, the child rights and protection and the situation of the citizens in a state of vulnerability’, the release said.

Plumb also had meetings with representatives for 11 Swedish NGOs operating in the social area as well as with representatives for the 30,000-strong Romanian community in Sweden, who represents a linking bridge for the strengthened relations between Romania and Sweden, the release added
