    [02] President Emil Constantinescu met his Hungarian counterpart Arpad Goncz

    While in Aachen on Sunday, Romanian President Emil Constantinescu met his Hungarian counterpart Arpad Goncz. The two presidents have admitted that the European Union should accelerate its internal reform as its enlargement depended on it. President Constantinescu has mentioned that the problems his country was facing could be solved in case of an accelerated privatisation. He praised the positive attitude the Romanian Hungarian minority had been proving during the social-political unrest last week. In his turn, President Arpad Goncz seemed surprised that the Western countries always insisted on the costs the EU enlargement involved while never mentioning the benefits the new member states could bring if admitted.

Early in February, the academy is to get 20 computers worth 150,000 US dollars, and the American side is also expected to ensure the teaching facilities and the training of five English language teachers.

    The German world leader in weapon manufacturing, Kraus-Mafei, has announced it is ready to sent a delegation to Bucharest and start the co-operation with Romania's MApN.

    [05] The Republic of Moldova signed a cotract with Romania's CONEL

    An energy supply contract was signed between the Republic of Moldova and Romania's CONEL. Under the contract, the CONEL is to ensure the energy supplies for Moldova. Romania is to deliver 85 MW daily representing the highest power capacities of the existing three energy lines. The price: 3.2 US cents per 1 kwh. Since November 25, 1998, the Republic of Moldova got Romanian energy exports of 3.3 million US dollars representing some 106 million kwh and 2.2 per cent of the republic's energy needs last year. Moldovan Deputy Prime Minister Valentin Dolganiuc said his country may pay its energy debts by selling shares of Moldovan enterprises under privatisation. For instance, the Romanian telecommunications company, ROMTELECOM, may be offered a share-package of its Moldovan counterpart, MOLDTELECOM, the Moldovan official explained. RADOR

    [06] The miners: still facing unemployment

    Negatiations have been taking place in Petrosani last week between the managing board of the Mineral Coal National Company (CNH) and the trade unions in mining industry. The two sides were expected to find a solution and prevent more losses while, at the same time, raising the miners' wages. The CNH lost some 30 billion lei during the miners' unrest some ten days ago, but the company failed to recover as it had no more coal to deliver. Conseuqently, the miners are still facing unemplyment. At the coal pit in Dalja, the director has announced that some 350 miners of the existing 1, 000 were to lose their jobs. There are no other job opportunities for the miners in the Jiu Valley as no other activity was reported in the region. RADOR

    [07] Many Romanian counties are badly affected by heavy snow falls and storms

    As the snow falls and storms were slowing down recently, the Romanian rescue teams were allowed to intervene and pull back on their track the hundreds of cars cought under the snow. The traffic resumed between such north-western Moldovan cities as Onesti and Bacau, Adjud and Bacau, Roman and Targu Frumos or Pascani and Targu Frumos. More than 350 people were waiting for two days to move out of the route linking Razboieni,Sarca and Baltati where, according to some sources, the snow was over 2 meters high. The energy supply in the Pascani region was restored but there were still 34 towns and villages in the Iassy County still in the dark. The traffic is still difficult in the northern County of Suceava. RADOR
