Prime Minister Ludovic Orban’s meeting with the European Commissioner for Budget and Administration, Johannes Hahn

Press statements by Prime Minister Ludovic Orban


Ludovic Orban: I thank the European Commissioner for Budget and Administration, Johannes Hahn. I also thanked him during our meeting, for the constantly favourable position he had during negotiations, in the relation with Romania.

Today's discussion was an extremely important one as it focused on fundamental aspects concerning the future of the European Union; in particular, we discussed the Multiannual Financial Framework, the EU budget for 2021-2027 and we also had a discussion on the European Union's economic recovery plan and mainly the structure of the National Resilience and Recovery Plan. In our discussions, we emphasised that we will support the European Commission and our position will be support for the adoption as soon as possible of all the necessary regulations so that both the EU budget, the Multiannual Financial Framework related regulations may pass very shortly and also all the details of the Economic Recovery Programme, which was adopted by the European Council.

We believe that a close dialogue and co-operation between the European Commission,  the governments of the European countries, the government I am leading, are extremely important because all the opportunities that have arisen from European decisions, both those concerning the EU budget and those related to the Recovery and Resilience Facility can generate rapid economic recovery at the European level, certainly by taking into account the priorities set by the Commission, related to smart Europe, related to serious investments in innovation, research and development, smart digitalisation solutions, as well as the priority pertaining to a green Europe with the fulfilment of the objectives that are set in the regulations adopted at European level.

I also want to thank Mr Hahn for the very good collaboration we have had; this is Mr Hahn's third term in office. In his previous tenure, we had extremely serious relations, as he held the important portfolio of neighbourhood and enlargement of the European Union, being a very close partner to Romania. I also want to thank him for the very good collaboration we have had and I assure him that between the Romanian Government and him there is continuous communication, dialogue and support for all the steps that can lead to decisions benefiting the European Union.
