President Klaus Iohannis has signed on Monday the decree of appointment of Dragos Pislaru as Labour minister.
President Iohannis said that the new Labour Minister, Dragos Pislaru, takes over the office in a complicated context and wished him good luck and inspiration.
"You take over the office in a complicated context and I wish you good luck and inspiration," Iohannis told the new minister, whom he congratulated and wished good luck with his tenure.
"I cannot overlook an entire complex of issues expecting you, namely the public pay system. It is a complicated situation: for many years now, those in the government, in Parliament have been trying to find solutions to this problem, without having found one that satisfied everyone yet," Iohannis told the new labour minister.
He said there is a great expectation for an increase in public pay and eliminating imbalances in the system.
"I wish you, Mr Minister, that together with all the involved parties, with the colleagues in the government, with the trade unions, with all those who can contribute to this discussion, you consider this matter and find a good, widely accepted solution, which should really improve the situation in the area," the head of state added.
Pislaru was the economic advisor of Prime Minister Dacian Ciolos. Ciolos had nominated Pislaru earlier in the morning.
