EC’s President Leyen expected to endorse Romania’s Resilience Plan


The President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen is expected on Monday to unveil the evaluation of Romania’s National Recovery and Resilience Plan (PNRR), News.ro reported, according to Romania Insider.

European Commission stated that von der Leyen will meet with Romania’s President Klaus Iohannis and Prime Minister Florin Cîţu.

The former minister of the investments and European Projects, Cristian Ghinea will attend the meetings although he is no longer a member of the Government.

While the European Commission has not yet approved Romania’s PNRR, 12 states have already received the advance payments.

In the case of Romania, the advance payments are around €3.6 bln and are expected by the end of the year, after the European Council endorses the PNRR as well.

Romania will receive €30 bln under PNRR for projects to be completed by 2026, out of which some €16 bln are soft loans and the rest are to be formed by grants.
