Bucharest Mayor Gabriela announced that the financial incentives given by the municipality in 2018 will be also given this year, despite the fact that the mayor has recently complained that the budget of the Bucharest Municipality (PMB) has been cut. Incentives amounting RON 400 million have been given by January 31.
“As I promised, even if the budget of the Bucharest Municipality is diminished because of certain political decisions taken by the Romanian Government, Bucharest Municipality will continue to encourage natality, support children’s education and improve the lives of those in the vulnerable social categories. Bucharest people don’t have to suffer the consequences of a political revenge, so we will do whatever is necessary in order for the six programs of which more than 80,000 citizens have benefited only last year, to be carried on also in 2019. Until today, financial incentives amounting more than RON 400 million have been given”, Gabriela Firea stated in a press release.
