Prime Minister Marcel Ciolacu declared on Thursday evening, at the end of the government meeting, that “this mandate is about reforms and the economy” and that “the Government of Romania and all the line ministries have announced that they are entering a regime of general mobilization” . He added that “we have PNRR targets and milestones to deliver and we cannot miss anything.”
“We gave colleagues the first drafts of ordinances that we want to read in the next Government meeting in order to apply them as soon as possible. It is about reducing the prices of basic foods, supporting food processing, the support scheme for the construction materials industry, plus the introduction of green energy in agricultural companies”, said Marcel Ciolacu, at the end of the government meeting.
He also added that “all civil servants must understand that we need performance in the administration” and that “the Romanian state can no longer pay just for budget officers to come to the office”.
“All officials must understand that we need performance in administration. The Romanian state can no longer pay just for the budget officers to come to the office, and this applies from the level of the minister to the level of executive officials. At this moment, at the Government of Romania and at all line ministries, we have announced that we are entering a general mobilization regime. We have to deliver targets and benchmarks from the PNRR and we cannot miss anything, the special pensions, the wage law, the management of state companies”, explained the prime minister.
“The mandate of this government is about reforms and the economy, how the economy can produce more value and jobs and the results can be seen concretely in people’s pockets. In every government meeting we have new economic stimulus measures. The first and most concrete result of good governance is that inflation falls. People feel that in the prices of some basic products, that’s what we want to do immediately and act from next week. Alongside this effort, we have other targeted measures to support agriculture, construction and energy. From my point of view, they are the areas that make the difference for people”, he concluded.
