Prime Minister’s advice for leaders of parliamentary parties ahead of discussions on Fiscal Code: They should read 7-month official data

Prime Minister Victor Ponta says it would be good for leaders of parliamentary parties, who gather on Thursday at the Parliament to discuss the final form of the new Fiscal Code, to also read the seven-month official data showing a budget surplus, bigger cash collection and a net increase of investments and exports.
“It is important that, as regards the country’s economic and social policies (the new Tax Code included), we talk with certain data and information / not on hearsay or on narrow political interests. For the tomorrow’s gathering of the parliamentary parties it would be better if everybody (politicians and politruks as well) reads the official data on the first seven months of 2015 – budget surplus, higher revenues (from the VAT, in particular), a net growth of investments and of exports! ‘It’s the economy ??????’ !” Ponta wrote on Wednesday on his Facebook page.
He specified that, according to data released by the Public Finances Ministry, the budget surplus reached 1.06% of the GDP after the first seven months of 2015.
“We have higher revenues than last year – the budget revenues are by 9.9pct up (in nominal terms), and revenues from the VAT recorded a +15.5pct increase! Moreover, we have a significant growth (+33.5pct as compared to the same period of 2014) of the expenditure with the financing projects from external grants. The investments expenditure were by 6pct higher (nominally) as compared to the last year,” the head of Government explained.
Prime Minister Victor Ponta will not attend the political discussions on the Fiscal Code scheduled for Thursday, because that day he will go on an official visit to the Republic of Moldova.
“I am in Chisinau on Thursday. I will be meeting the prime minister of the Republic of Moldova and continuing what I did in the previous years, namely providing support because Romania is in fact Moldova’s main support for what it is doing,” Ponta said after a meeting of the Social Democrat Party (PSD) National Standing Bureau.
Prime Minister Ponta will be paying an official visit to Chisinau, Moldova, as head of a delegation of ministers and state advisers on August 27, the Independence Day of the Republic of Moldova, the Press Office of Republic of Moldova’s Government quoted Moldovan Prime Minister Valeriu Strelet as saying in a release sent to Agerpres on Monday.
