PSD’s Dragnea: Public procurement law made transparent. Dancila: We’re following the German model

Social Democratic Party (PSD) President Liviu Dragnea announced on Monday, following the party’s National Standing Bureau meeting, that the public procurement bill is finalised, adding that the problem was never the lack of money but “the bureaucratic procedures and brake.”

“The public procurement bill has also been discussed, it’s finalised, placed in the transparency process. This week [the Premier] will still have meetings with the representatives of local administrations and, if they agree, they will supplement, improve the law, because here too there is a law that has represented a brake for both small and large investments in Romania. The main problem in Romania has never been the lack of money, but the bureaucratic procedures and brake. Even now in ministries there are still people in the second or maybe fourth echelons who are doing anything to block such investments,” Dragnea stated.


PM announces public-private partnership and procurement laws are set to be adopted shortly


On Monday, Premier Viorica Dancila also announced that the public procurement law will be adopted in the shortest possible time.

“In the shortest possible time, the first to be adopted will be the public-private partnership law and then the procurement law, which, as you know, is undergoing a transparency process. We hope that we can solve them in one week’s time. (…) In respect to the public procurement law, we are following the German model,” the PM said, after exiting the Social Democratic Party (PSD) National Standing Bureau (BPN) meeting, when asked what will happen with the ordinances referring to the two laws.

In respect to dual education, Dancila admitted that Austria could be an example.

Premier Dancila announced on Wednesday, April 18, at the start of the Government meeting, that the Finance Ministry has launched public consultations on the public procurement bill, stating that it is an awaited law that brings beneficial changes meant to lift the barriers from the path of investments in Romania.

“The Finance Ministry has launched for public debate the public procurement law, an awaited law, with beneficial modifications that would lift the barriers from the path of investments in Romania. We have had numerous discussions with local authorities, with central authorities, with investors, and we have identified the main barriers that we are trying to eliminate with the help of this law,” Premier Viorica Dancila stated.
