The National Bank of Romania (BNR) is ready anytime to offer to the public the necessary information for a better understanding of the central bank’s activity and responsibility, but will never answer some accusations without substance, fanciful and malicious, says the BNR spokesman, Dan Suciu.
In a release sent to Agerpres on Tuesday, Suciu said that for more than a month, the BNR has been under fire with accusations on a daily basis, accusations that have no correspondent in reality and are meant to induce confusion.
“All this go way beyond the legitimacy of the public interest as regards the national bank’s activity,” he added.
The BNR’s governor, Mugur Isarescu said on Monday that he didn’t agree to the pay of the central bank’s directors’ to be made public, considering that they work in an international market and their payment should be competitive to those in other countries. According to Isarescu, by the end of August the BNR’s Board will make public three elements regarding the pay inside the BNR, adding that he, personally, is against making the directors’ salaries public.
