The Alliance of Liberals and Democrats (ALDE) in Brasov on Saturday launched “We work in Romania” project, through which it plans to keep or bring back to Romania specialists, mostly young people who went to work or study abroad.
ALDE co-chairman Calin Popescu-Tariceanu said that Romania mustn’t “assist helpless” to the brainpower exodus, but must find solutions to stop this phenomenon and help the youth to make a career in their country.
“The project “We work in Romania” is directed to those who are trained, mainly young people. We must find solutions for their integration in Romania and for drawing them back to Romania after they complete their studies abroad. (…) We want very much that the young people who are highly trained to come back to Romania and contribute to the development of the Romanian society,” Calin Popescu-Tariceanu said, who participated in the ALDE Central Political Bureau meeting in Brasov.
He also mentioned that in the meeting it was decided to organise a campaign for drawing new members to the party and that the future ALDE candidates for the local elections will be designated by direct elections within each organisation.
ALDE co-chairman Daniel Constantin mentioned that by the end of the October the merger between the two parties making up the alliance will be completed, as it has been completed in 35 counties so far. He also said that ALDE currently has around 90,000 members and the party’s long-term objective is that of becoming the third political force in Romania.
