Boc: The letter of intent negotiated with IMF does not refer to dismissals
He emphasized that the reform of the administration would be in exchange carried out on the basis of a cost standard.
The Head of Government thus refuted the rumours that appeared in the past few days according to which the IMF was said to have conditioned the second tranche of the loan agreement by the dismissal of 20 or 10 percent of the budget employees.
The Prime Minister informed at the end of the coalition meeting that the Minister of Finance and the other ministers taking part in the negotiations with the IMF and the European Commission were empowered to make, during the final talks with the international financial representatives, decisions that should support the economic activity and the business environment in order to preserve jobs and develop economy.
Boc informed that the Government would stick to the flat tax and the current level of the VAT and, starting on October 1, they would put no more tax on the reinvested profit.
Another measure meant to support the economic environment is the one according to which, starting on January 1, 2010, the lump sum tax would be restricted to some specific fields and activities.
