Minister of Economy Costin Borc is to present a new country project on July 5. In addition, the ministry he is heading completed a study on the impact of Brexit on the Romanian economy which he will present to PM Dacian Ciolos.
“The country project will be launched next week, on July 5, at the Palace of Parliament. We consulted with the National Bank, with the Romanian Academy in drafting it,” Borc told the press at a conference. “We have a document that I will present to the PM and that he will release at the end of this week. A document relating to the real impact on the Romanian economy,” he added.
The country project is endorsed by President Klaus Iohannis. “There was a political consensus and political will for European integration. Unfortunately, there has not been a country project, a post-integration country project. Now is the time to make up for that, it is the time to elaborate a new country project, something that we will do together,” President Klaus said. “We must redefine the European project, we must make it better, easier to understand for the average citizen, more efficient. The same thing applies to Romania,” the president added.
Klaus Iohannis is attending the European Council (June 28-29) in Brussels, dedicated to discussing the political consequences of the UK’s exit from the European Union. “It is very clear for everyone that Europe, the European Union, has a lot of work to do,” the president said prior to his departure., adding that upon his return he will invite PM Ciolos, BNR governor Mugur Isarescu and leaders of political parties to talks.
