Presidential counselor Leonard Orban, former European Commissioner talked to readers and confessed that he expects an increase in infringement procedures against Romania on environmental protection. He declared that he is concerned especially for residue management processes and the modernization of big burning installations.

He added that in his opinion, Romania is getting further away from the euro zone accession objective for January 2015. His reasons are internal: the budgetary deficit should be below 3% and external as well: euro zone inclusion criteria will be harsher, especially after the Greek case.
