The sales market for new cars in Romania needs to be stimulated for environmental and employment reasons, declared Romanian Prime Minister Dacian Ciolos in an interview for Agerpres.
“We’ve put in application the Rabla program for this year, with a relatively big sum of money, which should continue encouraging the sales of new vehicles and, therefore, the replacement of pollutant cars or those which have already exceeded their use period,” said the Prime Minister on Thursday, after a visit to the Dacia factory in Pitesti.
Ciolos also believes that an increase in new car sales will protect employees’ jobs and will help continue the automobile manufacturers’ investments in Romania.
The Prime Minister also mentioned that a more predictable approach to the Rabla program is necessary.
“Even if the budget is annual, we could also introduce the “Rabla” program with a vision of the budget that can be allocated for two, three, four years. This is important for both producers and consumers,” he added.
