Bulgaria And Romania Welcomed To EU

15 December 2006


The European Council meeting of 14-15 December welcomed the accession of Bulgaria and Romania to the EU.

Commenting on the joint accession, European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso announced that:

“Finally the moment of celebration has arrived. 1 January 2007 will be an important day in European history. Bulgaria’s and Romania’s accession to the EU completes our historic fifth round of enlargement, which peacefully reunified Western and Eastern Europe.”

Enlargement Commissioner Olli Rehn added:

“When welcoming two new Member States and 30 million people into the family, we know our debates, culture and heritage will be richer, and our mutual ties and economies will be boosted. Enlargement is not a project for the elite, but it is very much about enhancing everyday life of ordinary citizens. Let’s celebrate this moment with as many people as possible.”
