The government wants to create a new dialogue tool in the relation with the private sector, said Ramona Chirila Lohan, state advisor.
“We are looking to extend the dialogue with the private sector through special departments and cross departments,” said Lohan in the first day of the Foreign Investors Summit, the 3-day event organized by Business Review.
She suggested that the new dialogue strategy aims to help Romania come up with a development plan for the next years.
“We are working on a new dialogue platform, aiming to bring together all stakeholders so as to identify the strengths, weaknesses and very rigorous follow-ups,” said Lohan, who explained that the new platform could become operational in the next few months.
In a speech presented on behalf of deputy PM Marcel Ciolacu, she underlined the fact that Romania remains below its real potential despite the strong economic growth rate and the “fulfillment of this objective relies on the increase of investments, the retention of the workforce and the fiscal predictability.”
The government official says that the authorities are focusing on infrastructure projects, most of which will be backed by EU funds. She suggested that the attraction of EU funds will run to the tune of EUR 6-7 billion per year.
“This year, we were able to create 110,000 new jobs and we reached a historic low of unemployment,” said the advisors, pointing out that companies fell the pressure on the market when looking for talent.
