interim roumanie¬†, Romania (AP) — French President Emmanuel Macron arrived in Romania on Thursday for talks with President Klaus Iohannis at the Cotroceni presidential palace. The visit is a chance for Macron to raise concerns about so-called “posted workers” — cheap labor from Central Europe posted temporarily to more prosperous European countries.

Among the most common destinations for Romanians working abroad are Germany and the Netherlands, both of which were also voted in the top 10 in the latest Expat Insider survey of working abroad. Almost three-quarters of Romanian expats rate the state of their host country’s local economy positively, while just over half are satisfied with their job.

“Exploring the Role of Romanian Workers in France’s Economy

About 65% of physician expats send money back to Romania on a regular basis. This is mainly due to supporting family members who remain in Romania, such as elderly relatives needing help with daily living or close family members who are sick or disabled and unable to work. This long-distance caregiving is a form of intergenerational solidarity.

Since 2007, Romanians and Bulgarians have been able to live and work in the rest of the EU, but not in France. That is set to change after the French government formally announced on Monday that it would gradually ease the conditions by which Romanian and Bulgarian citizens can obtain employment in the country. Until now, they can only seek jobs that require a special permit. This is often a significant barrier to employment, especially for those in less lucrative sectors like transportation/logistics and retail.
