Romania has spent most of its history as a divided country in the shadow of powerful neighbours, and until 1989 suffered under the repressive rule of the Communist dictator Ceausescu. Today the country faces the enormous task of economic reform, handicapped by a restrictive bureacucracy, corruption and unemployment. Hopes are pinned on entry into the EU in the next wave of admissions.
Population: 22 million.
Main religion: Romanian Orthodox.

CBM activities The first baptism as a result of advertising in Esperanto was in 1992. Regular visits have been made since 1994, including Bible schools and mini-campaigns. The activity centres on the towns of Braşov, Craiova, Caracal, Bucharest, Sibiu and Buzău. In recent years seminars in Romanian have been held in Braşov and Craiova. The ecclesias in Caracal, Craiova and Braşov all have their own premises, providing meeting rooms and accommodation for CBM and other visitors.
