BARROSO (2013) 155696
Dear Members of the Parliament,
Thank you for your letter of 6 February, concerning the access of Romanian and Bulgarian citizens to Member States' labour markets.
Free movement of workers is one of the fundamental freedoms of the EU Treaty and the Commission has always attached great importance to ensuring that EU citizens can enjoy this right without any restrictions.
As far as Romanian and Bulgarian workers are concerned, I would like to recall that the Commission has made it clear on several occasions that the restrictions on their access to the labour markets of other Member States will irrevocably end on 31 December 2013 and that no Member State can unilaterally extend these restrictions.
Please rest assured that Mr. Lбszlу Andor, Member of the Commission responsible for employment, social affairs and inclusion, will give you a detailed answer on the subject.
I would like to take this opportunity to send you my warmest regards.
V José Manuel BARROSO”
