For more than a year, we have all been working together - authorities and citizens alike - to reduce the negative effects of an unprecedented health crisis. Mistakes are impossible to avoid when working under such pressure, but in order to succeed it is absolutely essential that all this collective effort be based on honest and loyal collaboration, especially at the level of decision-making structures. Teamwork remains the essential condition for our actions to lead to positive results," said Iohannis.
