The Liberals have invited all parliamentary parties to consultations on August 17th on subjects regarding Romania’s macrostability such as European-fund absorption, infrastructure development and local administration reform. Another theme on the agenda is the Tax Code. Co-President of the Liberal Party Alina Gorghiu has stated that Liberal MPs are going to endorse the document on certain conditions:
Alina Gorghiu: We announced that we will endorse the Tax Code provided that numbers prove able to support the fiscal relaxation package. There have been several points and doubts which I hope the new impact study by the Cabinet will be able to put aside. I think these doubts – seconded by the Fiscal Council which believes all these measures, including raises of public servants’ salaries, would rise the deficit to 5-6% – are something we should discuss.
Other subjects proposed for consultations are the Schengen accession and Romania’s preparation for the EU Presidency in 2019.
