Florin Cîţu: It is time to speed things up. We have some details to work out. I am sure that we will have a PNRR, which will represent Romania’s development interests in the next period and we will of course see more discussions, but I am sure that we will have a good PNRR, a PNRR through which we will attract all the sums allocated to Romania.
