On Monday, April 16, 2018, Government Resolution No. 209/2018 amending GR No. 957/2005 and placing the INS under the Government came into effect as it was published in the Official Gazette. Last week the Government adopted the Government Resolution during its weekly sitting, its adoption raising suspicions that the Gov’t would subordinate the activity of the Institute. Recently INS published a series of negative reports on the inflation rate, wage evolution and GDP growth rates.
On Thursday, April 11, Minister of Public Finance Eugen Teodorovici announced that the pension transfer mechanism from Pillar II to Pillar I could be put up for debate with the Government by mid-2018. The mechanism would be an optional, transparent one, according to Teodorovici, who added that “in many fields the state proved that it cannot be a better manager then the private one”.
With regards to EC’s Country report, Teodorovici cleared, on April 11, 2018, that by mid-April an answer containing data on keeping the deficit below 3% would be drafted, and submitted.
On Tuesday, April 10, Eugen Teodorovici met with European Commissioner for Single Market Elżbieta Bieńkowska, and European Commissioner for Economic and Financial Affairs Pierre Moscovici to discuss on future “amendments and simplification of the legislation on public procurement” – with focus on public procurement centralization –, and on preventing and countering tax evasion.
