PM Boc: We will minutely analyze the trade unions proposals

We will clearly know if and by how much the salaries and the pensions grow, next Thursday, when the 2009 draft budget is okayed, PM Emil Bloc said on Friday (Jan 23) after the meeting at the Finance Ministry hqs between the trade unions and the employers, approaching topics such as the budget and the anti crisis measures.
All that one can do so far is but pure suppositions, PM Boc said, adding that all the proposals made by the trade unions and the employers on the state budget will be minutely analyzed and will try including them in the anti crisis measure plan, as well as in the 2009 draft budget.
The anti crisis measure plan generally focuses on the economic development, namely the main element of the budget and the anti crisis measure plan aim at the economic development, supporting the business environment and it had in view the allocation of 20% of the budget for investments, through the massive endorsement of the public investments in the infrastructure, namely transport, ring roads, national roads, motorways, and in the budget's economic infrastructure so that the Government should avail of the required resources and fulfill its social commitments, PM Boc said.
The budget's second item refers to the removal of the likely gridlocks in the economy caused by arrears, and thus it is a priority to pay back the overdue bills the ex-Government left behind, as well as the due subsidies, lest the the State be an extra blockage source, in the context of the economic crisis, PM Boc added.
PM Boc said that the new budget would balance the economic and the social elements.
Another priority will be the EU funds absorption. The competent authorities will thoroughly monitor the way they fulfill their task of attracting the EU money.
The social component also has a decisive fraction in the state budget, I want to assure you that the budget will keep the balance between the economic component absolutely required to endorse Romania's going forward, and the social one, so that we can protect those who are really in need, namely those who are the most vulnerable, in crisis times, PM Boc said.
We and the trade unions were talking about curbing the Government's expenditure and asked a very precise analysis of the personnel, of the governmental structures, PM Boc stressed.
"Our goal is to forecast in the budget the spending registered at the level of the years 2007-2008. We want the Government's costs of staff, material goods and services in the 2009 budget to stand closely to that in 2007 and 2008, because as you all can see the former Government had a wrong approach and reached a deficit higher than 5%, because it spent money on commodities, material goods and not on investments", PM Boc said, adding that during the meeting with the trade unions, there was also talked the law on the single uniform pay for the public employees, as well as special laws.
