Prime Minister Nicolae Ciuca declared on Wednesday at the government meeting that at the end of 2022 budget investments totalled 73 billion RON, “a record high for investments in our country” that confirms the positive trend of the Romanian economy.
“Sure, budget allocations stood at 88 billion, we have to admit that we didn’t succeed to reach the goal of one hundred percent, but considering the conditions under which the economic activity unfolded and the disarray caused by the increase in the prices of materials and, of course, the measures taken by the government in order to offset this increase, in the second part of the year we were able to properly manage the sector of investments and here we are with this figure that virtually confirms a highly positive trend for our economy,” said Nicolae Ciuca, according to Agerpres.
The head of the Executive pointed out that concrete measures are still needed to support the Romanian capital.
PM requests ministries to clarify all aspects related to payment request 2 from PNRR
Prime Minister Nicolae Ciuca told the involved ministries on Wednesday that they must clarify all aspects related to the second payment request from Romania’s National Recovery and Resilience Plan (PNRR) in order to receive the money on time.
“During this period, we are going to clarify all aspects related to the payment request number 2 from the PNRR. As such, each ministry that had milestones and targets to meet will have to be able to clarify and discuss with the technical staff from Commission and, where necessary, to be able to intervene, so that we can receive the money on time,” said Ciuca, at the beginning of the Executive sitting.
He added that the first discussions will begin for the preparation of payment request number 3 of the PNRR.
