Sedanje pogodbenice in novi pogodbenici:
– ob sklicevanju na sektorske prilagoditve za Lihtenštajn na področju prostega gibanja oseb, kakor so bile uvedene s Sklepom Skupnega odbora EGP št. 191/1999 in spremenjene s Sporazumom o udeležbi Češke republike, Republike Estonije, Republike Ciper, Republike Latvije, Republike Litve, Republike Madžarske, Republike Malte, Republike Poljske, Republike Slovenije in Slovaške republike v Evropskem gospodarskem prostoru z dne 14. oktobra 2003,
– glede na opažanje nenehnega velikega zanimanja državljanov ES in držav Efte za prebivanje v Lihtenštajnu, ki presega neto stopnjo priseljevanja iz zgoraj navedenega režima,
– ob upoštevanju, da ima udeležba Bolgarije in Romunije v EGP za posledico večje število državljanov s pravico sklicevanja na prosto gibanje oseb, kakor je vsebovano v Sporazumu EGP, soglašajo, da bodo pri pregledu sektorskih prilagoditev v Prilogah V in VIII k Sporazumu EGP ustrezno upoštevale navedene dejanske razmere in tudi nespremenjeno absorpcijsko sposobnost Lihtenštajna.

SKUPNA IZJAVA DRŽAV EFTE O PROSTEM GIBANJE DELAVCEV
Države Efte poudarjajo močne elemente diferenciacije in prožnosti v ureditvi prostega gibanja delavcev. Države Efte si prizadevajo zagotoviti večji dostop do trga dela za državljane Republike Bolgarije in Romunije na podlagi nacionalne zakonodaje, da bi se pospešilo približevanje pravnemu redu Skupnosti. Zaposlitvene možnosti v državah Efte za državljane Republike Bolgarije in Romunije po pristopu teh dveh držav bi se zato morale znatno izboljšati. Poleg tega bodo države Efte kar najbolje izkoristile predlagane ureditve, da bi kar se da hitro dosegle popolno uporabo pravnega reda Skupnosti na področju prostega gibanja delavcev. Za Lihtenštajn bo to opravljeno v skladu s posebnimi ureditvami, kakor je predvideno v Sektorskih prilagoditvah v Prilogi V (Prosto gibanje delavcev) in Prilogi VIII (Pravica do ustanavljanja) k Sporazumu EGP.
ENOSTRANSKA IZJAVA VLADE LIHTENŠTAJNA O DODATKU K PROTOKOLU 38A

– ob ugotovitvi, da so si države Efte v okviru finančnega mehanizma EGP močno prizadevale za povečanje financiranja v korist Bolgarije in Romunije, izjavlja svoje razumevanje, da bo pri pregledu, predvidenem v členu 9 Protokola 38a, dogovorjena morebitna dodatna finančna ureditev upoštevala že dosežena zmanjšanja gospodarskih in socialnih razlik, tako da se bodo prispevki treh držav Efte sorazmerno zmanjšali, če ena ali več sedanjih držav upravičenk v okviru take ureditve ne bo več izpolnjevala pogojev za financiranje.

IN SKLENETA NASLEDNJI PROTOKOL:
ČLEN 1
Besedilo Sporazuma, priloge in protokoli, ki so njegov sestavni del, ter sklepna listina s priloženimi izjavami se sestavijo v bolgarskem in romunskem jeziku, pri čemer so ta besedila enako verodostojna kot izvirna besedila. Skupni odbor odobri bolgarska in romunska besedila.
ČLEN 2
Posebne določbe, ki se uporabljajo za uvoz v Skupnost nekaterih rib in ribiških proizvodov s poreklom iz Norveške, so določene v tem protokolu in Prilogi k Protokolu.
Tarifne kvote iz člena 3 tega protokola se izvajajo v obdobju od 1. januarja 2007 do 30. aprila 2009. Ravni kvot iz člena 3 se pregledajo ob koncu navedenega obdobja, pri čemer se upoštevajo vsi ustrezni interesi.

ČLEN 4
Skupnost odpravi pogoj „za industrijsko proizvodnjo“ in s tem zahtevo končnega uporabnika za tarifne kvote, ki so bile odprte leta 2004 za zamrznjene skuše (zaporedne št. 09.0760, 09.0763 in 09.0778), zamrznjeni sled (zaporedna št. 09.0752) ter zamrznjene trakove sleda (zaporedna št. 09.0756).
