Rus’s target: All Ministry of Transports companies to turn profit


Minister of Transports Ioan Rus aims to make all companies under the institution turn profit, adding that he has business experience and his education in this area is German. “My target is to make all companies under the Ministry of Transports make profit, considering that most of them have incurred losses, a situation which is not normal with the facilities they have, others don’t benefit from them and must be improved, and it also is not normal in the current economic context… In a competitive market it is highly complicated to resist as long as you do not generate profit,” said Rus on Tuesday during a short press release at Otopeni Airport, reports Mediafax.
The official met the representatives of the Romanian Aeroclub, the Romanian Aeronautic Authority and the National Airports Company Bucharest within a schedule of visits aiming all the companies under the ministry.
