Negrescu asks for EU funds for Romanian children with parents abroad

“A recent study, carried out by non-governmental organizations, shows that almost 1 million children in Romania had at least one parent who went abroad for a longer period of time and that this had consequences on the development and situation of these children. Romania is not the only country facing such challenges. Since many of the highlighted problems can be solved through better collaboration at the European level, we have initiated this initiative by which we ask the European Commission to create an active working group in which the member states, competent authorities and representative non-governmental partners participate, to allocate additional European funds and coordinate the measures taken with the aim of maximizing examples of good practice”, says Victor Negrescu.

He states that the approach is supported by MEPs from several political groups.

“I am glad that this initiative had such a good response and that several MEP colleagues, with different political visions, support our approach”, concluded the PSD MEP.
