Klaus Iohannis makes the balance sheet of his first 30 days in office as President and counts the main achievements of his mandate in this lapse of time since taking over Romania’s helm.” In the 30 days after taking office as President of Romania, I have taken the first steps towards institutional project “Romania of the job well done.” Independence of the judiciary, increasing the defence budget in the current geopolitical context, strengthening of the strategic partnership between Romania and the United States, the evolution of admission into the Schengen area and reconfirmation of the firm commitments for the North – Atlantic Alliance, are just some of the topics I have addressed. I will continue this journey with you, through dialogue, through cooperation and respect for democratic values,” writes President Iohannis in a post on Facebook on Wednesday.
We need a sufficiently strong Government having a long-term economic vision, says Iohannis for the NYT
President Klaus Iohannis claims that Romania needs a sufficiently strong government, with a long-term economic vision, bringing a new kind of approach and having the courage to keep a set of economic rules as long as necessary.
The head of state said on Facebook that he granted, on Tuesday, an interview to the New York Times daily, in which he explained that the Romanian economy needs lesser, simpler rules.
“We have countless rules that continuously change and this discourages investors. We need a sufficiently strong Government having a long-term economic vision, that should change things. We need a Government coming with a new kind of approach and that having the courage to keep a set of economic rules as long as necessary”, said Iohannis.
