Progress Report on Fiscal Policies, February 15-19, 2016
Over the past week, a series of fiscal policy bills have either been passed or introduced on the Parliament's agenda, in the context of positive outlooks on Romania's economic performances. With the electoral race on  its way, it is expected that political parties propose new bills that might have a strong populist tone.

Weekly Policy and Political Report, February 8 - 12, 2016
The pre-electoral point of contention between the Social Democrats and the National Liberals has crystalized into two distinct legislative proposals drafted by the two parties, each one receiving critiques from the opposite side. Although aiming at regulating separate fields - healthcare, respectively freedom of speech -, the two bills have managed to stir up controversies nonetheless. The National Liberals' Law on Preventive Healthcare is under attack from representatives of both PSD and ALDE, who criticize the provisions stipulating that Romanians who are insured would have to pay additional treatment costs if they do not follow the preventive guidelines set by authorities.

Over the past week, a series of legislative proposals impacted the fiscal sector. A new amendment to the Fiscal Code has been announced by ALDE's Senator Varujan Vosganian, who wants to change the provisions of property taxation. The Senator and former Minister of Economy considers that taxation according to the nature of property owner, and according to the destination of the property are errors that have to be amended.

Weekly Policy and Political Report, February 1-5, 2016
Last week’s political debates revolved around the possibility of amending the electoral legislation during an election year. With Dacian Cioloș refusing to swing the local elections back to a two-round system - either by emergency ordinance, or by assuming responsibility in Parliament - the suggested solution is a bill that is to be debated in Parliament and voted by politicians. This option has already polarized political parties involved in the election process. The Social Democrats strongly oppose the possibility of reverting to a two-round system, having ALDE and UNPR on their side. On the other hand, the National Liberals are confronted with the task of raising a majority, and PNL Co-President Vasile Blaga even advanced the possibility of UNPR being inclined to accept such a change.

Progress Report on Fiscal Policies, February 1-5, 2016
The European Commission released the European Economic Forecast for Winter 2016 according to which the Romanian Economy is expected to peak in 2016, before slowly contracting in 2017. When it comes to policies, due to tax cuts and expenditure increases, the fiscal deficit is set to increase substantially, and at the same time, new legal initiatives in the financial sector pose risks to the macroeconomic outlook. Whereas the GDP for 2016 is expected to reach 4.2%, for the following year it is to set lower, at 3.7%, yet still among the best performing EU economies. Inflation is also expected to go up, from the negative average of -0.2% to 2.5% in 2017, while the Gross public debt is presented as advancing at the same pace, from 40.5% to 42.6% of GDP.
