Government assumes getting Romania rid of red tape

Newsroom 19/08/2010 | 14:00

The Romanian government adopted in a session on August 18 a basic document on getting the Romanian public administration rid of beaurocracy.

The memorandum (which has a very long title that goes like this: “Measures for Clearing the Central Public Administration Apparatus, Increasing Transparency and Efficiency in the Relationship with the Citizen, Reducing Operational Expenses and Reducing Non- Fiscal Taxes) stipulates the application of a concrete plan of measures that should facilitate the access of the citizens to information in public institutions. It is also meant to make the activity of public authorities more efficient in dealing directly with tax payers, but also to facilitate the interaction between various public institutions Last but not least, the circuit of the documents will be simplified and costs will be significantly reduced, stipulates the memorandum.

“The project we have initiated is a reforming one in its entirety, in the sense that it does not only resume itself to our specific activity, meaning informatization and the implementation of e-Romania, although this does hold an essential place in the beaurocracy- clearing process. It has in view a re-thinking of the entire relationship between the public administration, be it central or local, and the tax payer. After the measures in our project are applied, from an administration that is complicated, distant, we will have one that is simple, efficient, transparent, and in the service of the citizen,” said Gabriel Sandu, Minister of Communications.

A detailed calendar will be elaborated soon in which the exact steps for implementing this program will be stipulated.
