Prime Minister Victor Ponta reiterated at the Government’s sitting on Wednesday that he wanted the Fiscal Code to be re-adopted by an extraordinary session of Parliament by September 1.
“I’m glad the Fiscal Procedure Code has been promulgated, I’m glad the tax amnesty law has been promulgated, these are things that are part of a certain economic coherence the Government is responsible for. (…) I discussed with the Coalition leaders, we want the Fiscal Code to be re-adopted by an extraordinary session of Parliament by September 1, because this is a Code that was discussed with the businesses, it is a code approved by both chambers of Parliament unanimously, even though some forget now what they voted for three weeks ago”, Ponta said.
He argued the new Fiscal Code will help create jobs for the youths, thus supporting the development of the Romanian economy.
“This is neither a Liberal nor Social Democrat code, it is Romania’s and helps us create jobs for the youths, helps us develop the Romanian economy, helps us have money in the pension fund, helps us have money for all the other things. We must have it in force on September 1, because it is a good thing for Romania, not for the current Government. If there is something good that this Government has done in the last three and a half years, it is the fact it has managed that nobody lost a single leu in an economic and social abyss that lasted three years, [quite the contrary] everybody added something”, the Prime Minister underscored.
Ponta urged the ministers to take care of the matters relevant to their ministries in view of supporting the re-adoption of the Fiscal Code.
