Working together to find effective ways to manage the situation

"In recent years we have seen an increase in the number of EU citizens staying in Sweden temporarily, many of whom come from Romania and Bulgaria. These people are in a vulnerable situation. We need to find effective ways to manage this situation, and cooperation between our countries is of course very important," said Ms Regnér when meeting her Bulgarian counterpart Mr Kalafin on 9 September.

Ms Regnér met Mr Kalafin at the informal meeting of the EPSCO Council in July and invited him to talks on vulnerable EU citizens.

At this meeting on 9 September, Ms Regnér and Mr Kalfin discussed subjects of common interest, including vulnerable EU citizens. A desire for increased cooperation was expressed during the talks.
