Nicolae-Ionel Ciucă: Mr Vice-President, Ministers, ladies and gentlemen! Allow me to congratulate all those involved in preparing the signing of this agreement. The agreement between the European Investment Bank and the Transgaz National Company for developing the decarbonization strategy is an approach that is in line with the objectives and the level of ambition of the Government regarding the transition to a green economy. I want to underscore that this is an example of good practice and I encourage all institutions, and all companies to follow this example. Through this approach, we also meet the objectives we assumed under the PNRR so that we can maintain this balance between reforms and investments and, finally make the transition to the green economy become a reality. Congratulations once again to everyone involved. I thank the European Investment Bank for all the support it has extended so far and will continue to do so from now on. We discussed today with the Vice President, reviewing some of the projects in which the European Investment Bank has been involved in both regarding hospital infrastructure projects, we have discussed the three hospitals and together we are committed to making these projects start as soon as possible. Also, the support that the European Investment Bank provided to the Ministry of Education, financing a whole series of projects in Romanian universities and, of course, the support extended to young people from low-income families, is an experience that makes us confident that we can continue and henceforth identify the opportunities generated both by the security situation in which we currently find ourselves, with the specifics of the countries bordering Ukraine and, of course, the other opportunities through which we seek to ensure our energy sources and independence from Russia. Thanking you and congratulating you once again, I wish you every success in carrying out the programme.
