"During this Government meeting, the prime minister reviewed the progress made in achieving reforms and achieving the goals and milestones within the PNRR. At the same time, this will happen constantly in the next period; he was informed about the measures taken to absorb the money from the cohesion funds related to the Multiannual Financial Framework 2014 - 2020; we have two more years in which we can use these funds, and the measures to absorb the European money from the funds provided for Romania in the Multiannual Financial Framework 2021-2027," Cărbunaru said, quoted by Agerpres.
He also stated that he was not aware whether the money from the second tranche from the European Commission (EUR 1.95 bln, advance payment for the EUR 15 mln loans) was disbursed to the account of the National Bank.
