In Brussels on Friday, Romania's Prime Minister Sorin Grindeanu unveiled the priorities of his cabinet to Chairman of the Council of the European Union Donald Tusk, while reasserting their commitment to continue the fight against corruption. In a press statement released on Friday, the Romanian Government says the Grindeanu-Tusk meeting addressed the main current affairs in Europe, along with the priorities of the new Romanian government. "The Romanian prime minister introduced his government's priorities, with emphasis on economic measures that boost employment and economic growth, all of which are important in the current European context, as well as of direct interest to the citizens. He also reasserted the governments' commitment to continue the fight against corruption, for which he voiced readiness for cooperation with EU institutions." The Government also says that Romania's involvement and the consolidation of the country's part in the EU are some of its main priorities. "EU's unity and support for deepening European integration are essential, given the current internal as well as external challenges facing the EU. Any initiative that could lead to division must be firmly fought against," Grindeanu is quoted as saying in the statement.
