Romania to engage in April 4 bln euros from European funds allotted for 2014 – 2020

The Romanian authorities will engage in April 4 billion euros, following the projects staged and launched last year, European Funds Minister Aura Raducu told a specialist conference on Monday.
‘We are currently engaging through the operational programmes approximately 4 billion euros related to the already launched projects, the projects staged and launched last year. Therefore, in April we are about to engage these 4 billion euros for large infrastructure, roads, environmental and research-innovation projects and the competitiveness programme launched last year,’ Raducu said.
She pointed out that in order to come to the aid of the local authorities, a protocol with the regional development agencies will be signed this week.
‘To make it easier for beneficiaries to draw up these projects, this week we shall initial a protocol with the regional development agencies, in order to have in each county 2-3 experts capable of guiding the local authorities to get familiar with the opportunities, what steps they need to take, to offer advice and recommendations on the projects under preparation so the preparation methodology and the project selection be streamlined as much as possible. We envisage the simplification of the guides, we want to harmonise the activity of various management authorities, create standard models for guides, contracts, statements, so that the management and control system we make shouldn’t require unnecessary information or information that can be received from other public institutions,’ the European Funds Minister also said.
