10 QUOTES WITH «ROMANIA»

Famous quotes and sentences with the word Romania.
1
Traian Basescu
The increase in salaries at private companies has exploded, and Romania also faces a labor shortage, especially in construction. We believe that the Romanian market will remain an incentive, so that migration will not be an issue.
2
Traian Basescu
I ask you to stand by my side in the next five years. We shall live a good life in a Romania of all Romanians.
3
Traian Basescu
Even the National Bank of Romania doesn't have the huge resources needed to intervene in the market and keep the leu at an acceptable level, because they're drawing close to a floor below which the bank's reserves can't drop. The central bank has to wait for a moment of calm to efficiently conduct its interventions.
4
Traian Basescu
Romania will always defend the Roma's right to move freely in Europe. They are European citizens and as long as there is no evidence they broke the law they should enjoy the same rights of any European citizen.
5
Traian Basescu
There is no such thing as several Romanias, but only politicians who divide Romania depending on the interests of their parties and their clout.
6
Traian Basescu
More than ever, Romania now needs to see that a force exists that puts an end to Ponta and Antonescu's abuses and coup d'etat. This force is none other than the Romanian people.
7
Traian Basescu
We are the country that has attracted the biggest volume of foreign investment in southeastern Europe in the past few years. Romania doesn't need to beat itself, believing that it is a second-class citizen.
8
Traian Basescu
Romania will continue to fulfil its obligations in Afghanistan and Iraq.
9
Traian Basescu
I assure Romanians that once I return... I will try and generate a sentiment of reconciliation in society. Divisions in society must be stopped, they must be annihilated, because Romania needs all its energy to... integrate into the civilized world.
10
Traian Basescu
When I was the captain of a ship I never failed to bring my ship to port and I won't fail to bring Romania to safe harbor. The belief that the president no longer represents the people is false.
