Romania: Eurovision 2024 participation lies on the decision of the Minister of Finance!

Romania’s participation in Eurovision 2024 seems in jeopardy, as the latest developments indicate.

The limited budget allocated to the Romanian Public Broadcaster (TVR), which covers just the minimum necessary expenses, is insufficient for the country’s participation in Malmö. According to information shared on the Twitter account of the Eurovision Romania community, the president of TVR has submitted a revised budget to the Romanian Minister of Finance. If this budget is approved by the Minister of Finance, Romania will be able to participate in the contest. However, if it does not happen, the country will not take part in the 68th Eurovision Song Contest.

Therefore, the decision of the Romanian Public Broadcaster regarding its participation in Eurovision 2024 depends solely on whether the Minister of Finance approves a larger budget for TVR. Based on the currently available finances, participation in the contest is not feasible.

An announcement is expected in the coming days, regarding whether the additional budget requested by the president of TVR has been approved or not.

The last time Romania did not participate in Eurovision was in 2016, when  EBU did not accept the country’s entry, even though it had already been selected, due to  TVR’s non-payment of debts to the organization.
