Romania has problems in spending the European funds allocated for Agriculture and in identifying the property over land lots, said the president of the European Commission, Jose Manuel Barroso, after meeting prime minister Calin Popescu Tariceanu.

Barroso shown that, in case the necessary measures aren't taken in time, the Commission may activate the safeguarding clause for Agriculture.

On his turn, Tariceanu admitted that Romania is the country with the largest amount of small lots, identification becoming a difficult process. Tariceanu believes though that the delays will be recovered.

In order to avoid the lowering of funds, EC experts must be convinced that the Integrated Administration and Control System for direct payments is functional.
