Question for written answer E-7524/2010
to the Commission
Rule 117
Franz Obermayr (NI)

 Subject: Romanian passports for inhabitants of the Republic of Moldova
 Answer in writing 

The Romanian President Traian Băsescu wants to provide hundreds of thousands of Moldovans with EU passports. Already, as reported in the media, almost a million Moldovans have turned their backs on their home country (whose per capita economic output just equals that of Sudan). Most of them work abroad as guest workers, very often illegally. About 120 000 of the 3.6 million inhabitants of the Republic of Moldova already have passports from neighbouring Romania, while more than 800 000 are waiting for approval of their applications, according to Romanian Government reports. To deal with the flood of applications Romania’s foreign minister has opened two new consulates in the provincial cities of Balti and Cahul — apparently paid for by the EU.

Whence the following questions:

1. What is the Commission’s view of Romania’s plans and these worrying developments?
2. How is the Commission providing protection from the expected entry of ‘cheap labour’ from Moldova into the EU (via Romania)?
3. How des the Commission plan to prevent any resulting ‘social dumping’ in the Member States?
4. In view of these developments is it not appropriate to review the opening up of labour markets in the case of the new Member States?
5. What is the position with the EU’s foreign policy endeavours to grant the state sovereignty of the Republic of Moldova due recognition and support?
6. How would it be to increase economic cooperation with the EU, in order to curb the Moldovans’ efforts to migrate to Romania — and thus to the EU Member States?
7. Is it true that the two new consulates in Balti and Cahul referred to above were opened with EU financial support, and if so, what sum was involved?
