Preparations started with Romania in anticipation of its first mandate at the helm of the EU Council in 2019, and the CVM lifting in this time horizon, accession to Schengen and the switchover to the Euro have been the main topics addressed during the meeting.

In connection with the perspective of the CVM lifting, Prime Minister Sorin Grindeanu has expressed his strong belief that the dialogue carried on this topic with the European Commission experts brought the necessary clarifications for Romania to fulfil its undertaken commitments. "In these ten years since its EU accession, Romania has had a predictable, constructive and pro-European approach, and we are determined to fulfil all our commitments," the Head of the Executive stated, adding that EU accession brought very many benefits to Romania.

Prime Minister Sorin Grindeanu has at the same time mentioned the fact that Romania has already been prepared for some years, from the technical point of view, for Schengen accession, he has presented the progress made over the past two months regarding subsidies for farmers and has pleaded for the relocation to Bucharest of the European Medicines Agency (EMA), Romania's intent to file its candidacy in this respect being already formally announced by a memorandum approved by the Government. In his turn, Public Finance Minister Viorel Stefan has given assurances with respect to Government's determination to maintain the deficit target of three per cent of GDP.

The European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker has hailed the progress made by Romania, expressing once again the hope that Romania will be welcomed into Schengen and the Mechanism for Cooperation and Verification (MCV) will be lifted before the country takes over the presidency of the EU Council.
