Romania to benefit from European funds worth 3-5 billion euros, through SURE programme


Prime Minister Ludovic Orban on Wednesday stated that Romania will benefit in the next interval of an amount between 3 and 5 billion euros from the EU, as a result of the approval by the Council of the EU of regulation on the implementation of the SURE programme. 

"The Council of the European Union has approved a regulation on the implementation of the so-called SURE programme. This is a programme by which the European Union helps the member states, the active employment measures. Basically, we can say today that Romania has the guarantee that it will benefit from EU funds to be able to put into practice the employment measures conceived by the Romanian Government, which measures are meant to help both the employers and the employees. (...) in exchange, Romania will have to offer a guarantee of up to 400 billion euros and it will benefit, according to our calculations, of course, depending on the mechanism of distribution of the respective funds, of an amount between 3 billion and 5 billion euros," Orban said at the Victoria Palace.

He added that technical unemployment is to be replaced by another measure meant to support those fields that will resume activity, through the allocation of a percentage of the gross salary of employees of up to 41.5 per cent.
"We will continue to pay the furloughed staff in those fields where restrictions are being maintained after June 1, but we will replace this measure in the case of the other fields that will resume their activity with another active support measure, namely we will give a certain percentage of up to 41.5 per cent of the gross salary of each employee who resumes his/her activity at the company he/she used to work at," announced the PM in a press statement at the Victoria Palace.
