Businessmen and analysts foresee economic growth in 2010
Most of the 50 analysts and businessmen consulted by Ziarul financiar daily over the evolution of the domestic economy next year appreciated there will be recorded economic growth in Romania, although there existed a few pessimists too, who spoke of a possible drop of 5 percent.
Ziarul financiar wanted to know the opinion of some of the most important players on the market, in the context in which the Romanian economy is currently crossing one of its most uncertain times, with political instability doing nothing else but worsening the already bad situation.
Thus, relaunching the economy will depend on the general evolution of economies in the euro zone, the same as on the measures the government is going to take. The risk of a prolonged recession is mostly depending on the political factors and on the fiscal policy.
An ambitious programme of fiscal consolidation, the continuation of the measures to relax the monetary policy, the political stability and implementation of such measures to straighten out the economy are only a few of the suggestions made by the specialists consulted by the Ziarul financiar to help economy. The businessmen’s concerns were mainly related to the increasing jobless rate, the drop in the population’s purchasing power, the drop in the investments and consumption rates and the explosive growth in the inefficient credits.
