ZIARUL FINANCIAR
Romania is the country with the biggest oil production in the region, four-times bigger than the one of Poland, and fills the first place in gas extraction as well, according to European statistics which do not include Ukraine.

ECONOMICA
Romania has currently 6.06m employees and 5.1m retirees marking the first time in three years when the number of those working with individual employment contracts exceeds that of pensioners.
