Bucharest government to request the EC an updated study on the impact of labour market liberalization over EU member state economies / Restrictions for Romanians might be extended
Talks with also tackle the fact that the liberalization of the labour market contributes to a decrease of the black market labour and the states that postponed a decision confront a deficit of labour force which cannot be covered in the next years. Romanian authorities will therefore claim that the liberalization of the labour market will not lead to an increase in the number of Romanian workers but it will ensure a legal status for those already present in the states.
The document reads that Bucharest expects in the same time to have the restrictions extended due to the reticence of the public opinion towards the foreign workers, in the context of the crisis. Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Great Britain, Switzerland and Malta still maintain their restrictions for Romanian workers.
