PM Ciuca: We’ve ensured economic stability, economic growth, jobs protection and 34 pct increase in FDI

Prime Minister Nicolae Ciuca said on Thursday that the measures taken have succeeded in ensuring economic stability, protecting jobs, an economic growth of 6.5% compared to the same period of last year and a 34% increase in foreign direct investments.

“A little while ago, I had a meeting with the German Business Committee. It is worth pointing out that, through this dialogue, through the measures that we have taken and that, as I said, we will continue to take, we have managed to ensure economic stability, we have managed to protect jobs, we have managed to have an economic growth of 6.5% compared to the similar period of last year in the first quarter, we have an increase in foreign direct investments of 34%, which is very encouraging,” Ciuca said at the beginning of the government sitting.

He said it is the government’s duty to continue providing the necessary attention to have a balanced economy, “that develops to the extent of existing decisions and opportunities”, in a context “not at all easy, as complicated as possible, with a succession of crises, with a very complicated security situation at the border”.

“Notwithstanding, we must stress that we have at our fingertips opportunities aimed at developing the capabilities of green energy sources. We also have at our disposal opportunities for the development and dynamization of the digitization process, of debureaucratization, as requested by the reform programme included in the National Recovery and Resilience Plan (PNRR) and also, by a series of reforms that are imposed by our path for accession to the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, which, at the moment, is legitimized by the receipt of the Roadmap at the end of last week. And, in this way, it is the government’s duty that, together with the entire associative environment, with the entire business sector, with the entire civil society, to ensure the fulfillment of these standards imposed at the level of this organization that ensures 90% of the global investments,” the prime minister added.

Nicolae Ciuca also said that “all these steps must be materialized through an activity as sustained as possible at the level of each ministry”.

“I assure you that we will make all the necessary efforts to achieve these objectives,” the prime minister concluded, according to Agerpres.
