The visit included presentations, workshops, study visits and discussions on the cooperation agreement entered into between Sweden and Romania.

Romania has good prospects, knowledge and capacity to apply for EU funds to finance projects covered by the agreement.

The Romanian working group wants to gain knowledge about Swedish experiences of de-institutionalisation of orphanages and homes for people with impairments. The group visited the City Mission's operations for vulnerable and homeless EU citizens and daytime activities for people with impairments.

The next meeting of the working group will be in Bucharest in mid-December.
