ABSTRACT
This article explains that the European Union has further extended its family, welcoming Romania and Bulgaria into the fold on 1 January 2007. The accession of the two former communist countries means that the EU now houses 27 members and half a billion people. Both the old and new states are happy with the deal. But Bulgaria had to close two nuclear power plants on New Year's Eve to join the EU.
