Timisoara

The City Hall of Timisoara is the local public administration structure whose main tasks are to manage the city’s assets, to establish policies and to apply measures to ensure the sustainable development of city. In this respect, in the last years, Timisoara City Hall developed several European projects (Phare CBC, Phare – regional development, Phare – social services, Phare Institutional Development, Ispa Environment, Ecos Ouverture etc.) and other international cooperation projects. Among these, from 2003 to 2005, Timisoara was partner in the European project on immigration issues "Pilot Programme on the Impact of Enlargement for the Regions Bordering the Candidate Countries", initiated and implemented by Veneto Region.

Due to its geographical position, Timisoara is confronted in the last years with several types of populations flows, belonging both to the emigration and immigration phenomenon, as follows:

- emigration, mainly towards countries of Western and Southern Europe;

- several transit and permanent immigration flows coming: from different other regions of Romania (e.g. Moldova, Transylvania, Oltenia) or from the Ex-Soviet Union republics (e.g. Moldova, Ukraine, Georgia, Armenia etc.) toward our city or toward the Western Europe countries;

- immigration flow coming from Asia (China, India, Pakistan, Sri-Lanka, Afghanistan, Syria, Jordan, Iraq, Iran etc.), Africa and Western Europe.

This phenomenon concerns currently small numbers of people but, as its dynamics over the past few years show, it is expected to grow significantly in the near future.
