Prime Minister Victor Ponta said Friday that his visit to Tulcea accompanied by members of his Cabinet did not regard Danube Delta projects only, as their informal talks focused on main legislative priorities of the Government for the remaining of the year – the Public Procurement Law, the Public Pay Law and the 2016 national budget.
“The same as in the years before, I met my colleagues for almost half a day. We discussed what is the most important for this autumn, for the remaining of the year. And now, if the Tax Code passes, I will be very glad because that was the most important project of the first half year, and so we can move on to the next projects for this year, meaning the Public Procurement Law, the Public Pay Law and the 2016 national budget. (…) I find this the ideal place for informal training for what starts on September 1, because after that we would be hard pressed finding time. After September 1, there will be something burning every day. Things go on much better when we sit down and agree on priorities,” Ponta said in Tulcea.
He added that his governmental team is quite solid.
“We have to implement all the good things in the economy, the social chapter, pay increases and tax cuts. That was all, nothing spectacular,” the Prime Minister also said.
Ponta and the ministerial retinue arrived in Tulcea at noon and embarked on the Naiada ship of the Tulcea County Council.
Later in the day, Ponta said in a Facebook post that the Danube Delta remains an ideal place for teambuilding with the Cabinet members to prepare the public policies for the remaining of the year.
