Florin Spataru is a Romanian politician who holds the position of Minister of Economy in the Romanian Government since November 25, 2021. He graduated from the industrial high school in Galați (1988) and in 1995 he obtained a master’s degree in engineering and marine architecture from Universitatea “Dunărea de Jos” din Galați, and in 2002, a BA in accounting and management computer science from the same university. He also holds a PhD from the Academy of Economic Studies in Bucharest. In the private sector, he served as HR & Corporate Affairs Director and CFO at the Damen Shipyards in Galati and Mangalia, and was the Vice-President (2009-2013) and President (2013-2021) of ANCONAV, the Romanian shipbuilding association.

“The Economy Ministry is dedicating a state aid scheme to the manufacturing industry for the first time in the last 30 years. Large companies in Romania now have access to EUR 300 million in grants for large investment plans worth at least EUR 3 million. As a result of an in-depth market analysis, we decided to prioritise investment plans that aim to cut dependence on imports in order to support the essential value chain in the development of the local economy. Green investments of minimum 10 percent of the value are mandatory for a project to be eligible. In addition, companies that will make investments in vulnerable of underpopulated areas across Romania, as well as those that will employ more than 100 individuals, will get a higher score in the evaluation process.” Florin Spataru told BR in an exclusive interview.
