The Government will endorse the efforts made in attracting Romanians from the diaspora back home, Prime Minister Mihai Tudose stated on Monday, on the occasion of a meeting he had at the Government Palace with the representatives of the RePatriot project, a project aimed at bringing back to the country Romanians working abroad, through entrepreneurship.
According to a release of the Executive, the representatives of RePatriot ask for public policies and a legislative framework favourable for Romanian entrepreneurs from abroad, while showing that 57 per cent of the Romanians from the diaspora want to return home, as an opinion poll shows.
Prime Minister Tudose showed that the Executive will endorse the efforts made in attracting Romania from the diaspora to come back to Romania, while specifying that their return would be a real progress and that the governmental endorsement needed for this desideratum to be achieved shouldn’t depend on the political colors.
