COUNCIL DECISION

of 16 March 2010

amending Decision 2009/459/EC providing Community medium-term financial assistance for Romania

(2010/183/EU)

THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 332/2002 of 18 February 2002 establishing a facility providing medium-term financial assistance for Member States’ balances of payments (1) and in particular Article 5, second subparagraph, in conjunction with Article 8 thereof,

Having regard to the proposal from the Commission made after consulting the Economic and Financial Committee (EFC),

Whereas:

(1)

By Decision 2009/458/EC (2), the Council granted mutual assistance to Romania and by Decision 2009/459/EC (3), the Council provided medium-term financial assistance for Romania.

(2)

The scope and intensity of the economic recession affecting Romania calls for a revision of the economic policy conditions foreseen for the disbursement of the instalments of the financial assistance with a view to taking into account the impact of the larger-than-expected contraction of real GDP.

(3)

Decision 2009/459/EC should therefore be amended accordingly,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:

2.

in Article 3(5), point (b) shall be replaced by the following:

‘(b)
