“Recently discussing visible changes in Romania with a friend, he made the following comment concerning the country’s development in the course of the last twenty years. His observation was that during these two decades, there has been in fact very little evolution in most of the country’s infrastructures. Since 1990, a large number of very local improvements have been made but they are still disconnected from each other, as well as from the larger national, international or global environment. And no matter their number, if local improvements are not connected to each other, they do not add up to the perception of real collective development.
The common example that most people have experienced directly or through acquaintances concerns the number of private homes and public developments that have sprouted right and left and that are patiently waiting to be connected to the electrical, sewage, water and road system. These homes and developments are often beautiful and have been sold, but they can neither be accessed nor inhabited for lack of connection to decent infrastructure.”
