The meetings between the ministers of environment of Bulgaria and Romania to become regular

Date: 13.10.2005

The meetings between the ministers of environment of Bulgaria and Romania will become regular. This was announced after the meeting of the Bulgarian Minister of Environment and Water Dzhevdet Chakarov and the Romanian Minister of Environment and Water Management Mrs. Sulfina Barbu. The meeting was held in Rousse at the invitation of Mr. Chakarov.

Minister Chakarov proposed that the future meetings should be organized on particular topics. At the invitation of Sulfina Barbu, the first meeting will be held in Romania in the first quarter of 2006. It will focus on the prospects for strengthening cooperation in biodiversity. Some of the potential topics to be discussed are the wetlands protection, the enlargement of the transboundary protected areas and the protection of the migrating fish in the Danube.

It was agreed Bulgaria and Romania to exchange experience in the preparation for the absorption of the EU Cohesion and Structural funds. The preparation of joint projects for transboundary cooperation was emphasized during the meeting. The two ministers believe that particular topics have to be defined for such projects of mutual interest. Minister Chakarov cited the good example of the joint project for the air quality monitoring in the lower Danube basin. Finalizing it, we shall give evidence to the citizens of the two countries and to our European partners for our readiness to identify pollution sources and undertake adequate measures to protect the environment and human health, Minister Chakarov said.

The two ministers shared the opinion for the necessity of close bilateral cooperation for fulfilment of their commitments for EU membership in the field of environment. Both countries have to realize serious tasks in this area and I am convinced that the active cooperation will be on benefit, Minister Chakarov said.

The ministers pointed out that the agreement on all issues discussed at the meeting was a positive sign for our EU partners as well as for the citizens of the two countries. Bulgaria and Romania are together on their way to the shared goal of EU accession on 1 January 2007, concluded Minister Chakarov.
