The discussions focused on the Diaspora Hub projects, the single point of contact where Romanians abroad will be able to find useful information and which aims to become the state-citizen interface in the diaspora, the Mobile Community Center of the Diaspora, to provide itinerant assistance to Roma communities and to collect data on the fluidity of the migratory flow from one European state to another, states a release of the Department for Romanians Abroad sent to AGERPRES.
Also, the reintegration policies, the brain drain phenomenon and the issue of regaining Romanian citizenship, the equivalence of diplomas and studies were on the agenda of the discussions, according to the quoted source.

For his part, Dan Barna, Deputy Prime Minister, said that he wants "every Romanian citizen to feel that his/her country keeps a door open for him/her, for Romanians abroad to feel that Romania wants them".
