At its last meeting of the year on 27 November, SEDEC members adopted an opinion drafted by Emil Boc (RO/EPP), mayor of Cluj-Napoca, which urges to address the challenge of brain drain in coordination with all levels of government. Otherwise, “the phenomenon will have long-term and permanent effects on the future of the European Union”, the draft opinion warns.
