EU: why Romania is now opening up to foreign workers

Twenty years ago, Romanians stood in line in front of grocery stores. Today, it is foreigners who form the queues: here, Ukrainians waiting for distribution of food aid, there, Nepalese or Bangladeshis waiting in front of an immigration office to renew their work and residence permits.

The Romanian economy has been growing steadily for a decade. Last year the growth rate was 4.7%. In 2010, GDP per capita after price adjustments was 53% of the EU average; In 2021, it reaches 74%.
