In Romania, numerous private actors are confronted with a financing shortfall, due to a negative feedback loop of tight credit and weak economic conditions. EU funding is an interesting alternative for many private actors, but issues such as slow reimbursements, complicated procedures and awkward dialogue with financing authorities detract from their impact.
