Romania Prime Minister Emil Boc held a press conference on Tuesday, discussing the absorption of European Union funds. Although Romania has a better pace than during the previous governance, Boc says that the absorption capacity is far from pleasing.

PM Emil Boc's main statements, in brief:

- I am not pleased with Romania's funds absorption capacity;

- Between December 22, the day the current Government begun its work, and March 20, 2009, 683 operational program projects were approved, compared to 420 - the number of projects approved between 2007 and 2008;

- Referring to effective signing of financing contracts, 360 such contracts were signed during the same period, compared to 168 contracts between 200 and 2008.

- The total value of financing contracts is over 630 million Euros;

- Most projects are in the "Increase of economic competitiveness" operational field;

- What we need to do is to shorten even more the distance between approving a project and signing the financing contract;

- The second problem is the distance between gaining financing and organizing the necessary bids,  this problem is often not a Governmental problem. There are terms reaching even 14 months from signing the contract to putting up a bid;

- For this, we begun to modify the public procurement law, reducing the bid  organizing term from 87 to 30 days;
