European Commissioner for Enlargement: Romania and Bulgaria must strengthen efforts to meet the 2007 deadline


European Commissioner for Enlargement Olli Rehn told the European Parliament's foreign affairs Committee on April 3 that Romania and Bulgaria must strengthen efforts to meet the 2007 deadline of accession to the European Union. While praising Romania for efforts to fight corruption, Rehn emphasized that neighbouring Bulgaria was lagging behind in this respect.

The European Commission publishes its final reports on both candidate countries on May 16. The EU has reserved the right to postpone accession by a year if it considers either or both countries have failed to fulfill the required legislative reforms.
