THE ASSOCIATION COUNCIL,

Having regard to the Europe Agreement establishing an Association between the European Communities and their Member States, of the one part, and Romania, of the other part and in particular Article 64(4)(a) thereof,

Whereas:

(1) Article 64(4)(a) of the Europe Agreement lays down that the Association Council shall, taking into account the economic situation of Romania, decide whether the period within which any public aid granted by Romania shall be assessed taking into account the fact that Romania shall be regarded as an area identical to those areas of the Community described in Article 87(3)(a) of the Treaty establishing the European Community should be extended for a further period of five years.

(2) The GDP per capita of Romania measured in Purchasing Power Standards reached 31 % of the Community average in 1997; it is appropriate to make such an extension,

HAS DECIDED AS FOLLOWS:

Article 1

The period within which any public aid granted by Romania shall be assessed, taking into account the fact that Romania shall be regarded as an area identical to those areas of the Community described in Article 87(3)(a) of the Treaty establishing the European Community, shall be extended for a further period of five years.

Article 2

Within six months of the date of adoption of this Decision, Romania shall submit the GDP per capita figures which have been harmonised at NUTS II level at the European Commission. The Romanian State aid monitoring authority and the European Commission shall then jointly evaluate the eligibility of the regions as well as the maximum aid intensities in relation thereto in order to draw up the regional aid map on the basis of the Community guidelines on national regional aid(1). Thereafter, the joint proposal shall be submitted to the Association Committee, which shall take a decision to this effect.

Article 3

This Decision enters into force on the day of its adoption. It applies as from 1 January 1998.

Done at Brussels, 17 July 2000.
