Transcript of Defense Presentation

What is impeding the absorption of European Union Structural Funds
given to the Romanian Transportation Sector? Diana Hasegan Committee: Prof. David Veshosky,
Prof. David Stifel, Prof. Mark Crain “The fact that our country fails to attract European funds in the early years post-accession, at least to the same extent to the national contribution at the community budget, registering a net expenditure as a EU member is a situation not only paradoxical, but with dramatic effects on the horizon of development gap recovery and of real convergence with EU countries.” George Georgescu. (2008)
“Determinants of EU Funds Absorption Capacity in Romania” “There is a distinct feeling of lack of authority and coordination in the process of preparation for the administration of the EU funds”
“It is better to use European Funds for public sector, because at the end the beneficiary is also the public sector.” Oana Lahman. (2008) “Some aspects regarding the administrative absorption capacity for the structural funds in the Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Slovakia, Slovenia and Romania before accession” “since by the EU rules disbursement comes at the end of a project, if everything goes by the books, the ability to spend becomes an output indicator.” Romanian Academic Society. (2006)
