On Tuesday, 19 March, in Brussels, Deputy Prime Minister Liviu Dragnea, Minister of Regional Development and Public Administration, presented to the full Committee on Regional Development (REGI) of the European Parliament the state of Romania's regionalisation-decentralisation process.

"My message as Deputy Prime Minister is that Romania has the ability to learn from past mistakes and we want to be very well prepared for the fund absorption race, on 1 January 2014. Regionalisation is not an end in itself, the ultimate goal of the process is to set up functional structures. The current development regions mostly work in parallel with the counties. They have no own regional identity, no decisional power, no competencies, cannot manage projects, cannot ensure a democratic representation of local communities," Dragnea said in the Committee.
