„It is important that we decentralize, but let us also decentralize resources for the local authorities, which are closer to the citizen than the ministries in Bucharest, to be able to do their job,” underscored Geoana.
The Social Democratic leader said that the participants in the meeting were partially briefed on the recent debates held in Busteni (country south) on the subject of the public administration cost standards and that it was decided that a final viewpoint be adopted by September 2, for „the future legislation to include clear regulations for the public administration.’
„A common viewpoint on these standards is taking shape. They are necessary because we must know what to expect in terms of cost and quality of the services financed from the Romanian taxpayer’s money.
We expect that until next week such standards are also defined for the central administration, especially for the ministries that are high public money spenders,’ said Geoana.
