    The town of Oradea was the last stage of the tour the Interior Minister Gavril Dejeu has started four days ago in five northern Romanian counties including Bistrita-Nasaud, Maramures, Satu Mare, Salaj and Bihor.

Mr Dejeu admitted that, in some areas, there were "sources of unrest" on land legislation issues but he stopped short of mentioning them. On the other hand, he warned: "The reform is already started and it should be completed. If not, Romania will face further losses". RADOR, February 23

    [05] President Constantinescu on the status of the SIDEX iron and steel plant

    The President's two day visit ended on Sunday afternoon with some meetings at the SIDEX iron and steel plant. "We began seeing the results of the efforts of the managers of SIDEX" - President Constantinescu said. "I've seen three variants of the restructuring programme. I thing there is a valid restructuring plan" Mr. Constantinescu said referring to this strategic objective. The Supreme Defence Council decided to consider separately these economic objectives that were important for Romania's national security and to pay special attention to them" - the head of the state said. He added: "The plant now has output, it has a market and a programme aimed at improving the output but it is still carries its debts to the state budget and to some autonomous state owned companyes". In his opinion, "the way the managing team tackled this problem (upgrading - e.n.) in cooperation with the State Property Fund (SOF) and with the competence ministries has shown that restructuring can mean more than a fashionable word but a real and serious process.
