No Romanians in top EU lobby posts

In an interesting argumentation (Romanian), Dan Luca points out that among the around 5,000 lobby and interest groups in Brussels, non is headed by a Romanian, in particular because of the status of new member state and the lack of industrial structures in Romania.

Nevertheless, Luca highlights that these European leaders are quite influential (and well-paid), and that attention should also be given to these posts and not only to top EU institution positions if Romania wants to have influence on the European scale.
