Prime Minister Marcel Ciolacu declared on Tuesday that taxes and duties will not increase next year, nor will new taxes be introduced, which “burden Romanians and the business environment”. The declarations were made at the meeting of the Tripartite National Council for Social Dialogue, where several topics of concern to the government, unions and employers were discussed.
The PSD leader also stated that the Executive is looking for solutions to reduce labor taxation.
“We are preparing the budget for next year, on which we will consult with the social partners. I want to be very clear: in 2024 we will not increase taxes and fees and we will not introduce new taxes that will burden Romanians and the business environment. We are looking for solutions to reduce labor taxation and continue measures to increase budget revenues by combating evasion and better collection, including improving management at ANAF and Customs. We are taking all steps at the governmental level to start the year 2024 with the adopted budget, in order to have the predictability necessary for the business environment”, said Prime Minister Marcel Ciolacu, according to a press release.
Consultations with the social partners, within the Tripartite National Council for Social Dialogue, will also continue regarding the level of the guaranteed minimum wage in the economy.
“The government will make a decision on the minimum wage only after it is agreed with the social partners”, the head of the Executive emphasized.
At the meeting with the unions and employers’ associations, other topics of interest were discussed, such as ensuring the workforce, the implementation of the National Recovery and Resilience Plan and the dialogue with the representatives of the European Commission.
Also, the order of the Minister of Labor and Social Solidarity regarding the establishment of collective bargaining sectors was discussed in the first reading and the regulation regarding collaboration within the Tripartite National Council for Social Dialogue, according to the new Social Dialogue Law, was analyzed.
