The annual reports in 2010 on Bulgaria and Romania's efforts to deliver judicial reform and tackle corruption paint a different picture in the two countries. While Bulgaria has embraced reform efforts and achieved important results Romania has lost momentum with the report showing important shortcomings in its efforts to achieve progress.
