Spanish authorities intend to allow Romanian workers to access the labor market in the first two years after Romania's accession to the EU. Restrictions could be lifted after an evaluation conducted at the end of 2007, the Romanian National Radio Announced.

The subject was discussed on Saturday in the Romanian govt., where PM Calin Popescu Tariceanu met the Spanish Interior and Labor & Social Affairs Ministers.

The Spanish interior minister underlined the fact that authorities in Madrid wanted to consult Romanian officials before taking any decision, given "the special relationship between the two countries".

The solution found by Spanish authorities was to allow Romanian to work using a work permit and a labor visa.

Spanish officials also emphasized on the fact that these conditions are better by far, compared to the conditions imposed to the countries joining EU in 2004.
