Bulgarian Roma Welcome in Belgium

The government of the Belgian province of Flanders adopted a plan and strategy for social and professional integration of Roma from Bulgaria and Romania on the territory of Belgium, RIA Novosti reported. The Roma will be given access to labor market sectors experiencing hands shortage. So far such access was not allowed for citizens from Bulgaria and Romania although the two countries have been EU members since 2007.

“The message we would like to send is that the Roma from Bulgaria and Romania who come here will have to be ready to work,” commented Geert Bourgeois, Flemish Minister of Civic Integration.
