All the public spending must be checked, and in the second half of the year we shall provide a report on it, because the state should encourage work and not the lack of it, on Tuesday night said the Public Finance Minister Eugen Teodorovici, at the TVR public TV channel.
"We talk about 1.2 million of employees in the public sector. We should analyse all the public spending. We will provide a report in the second half of the year. Unfortunately, this is a state of facts when it is better to work for the state than for the private sector. And yet, each and every one must prove what they do. By making the acquisitions in a centralised manner, the budget spending could be slashed. The state must encourage work, not the lack of it, which demands a lot of measures through which we make the person do something for the money they receive from the state as social aid, for instance," Teodorovici said.
According to the Finance Minister, the introduction of the household tax or global tax will not be considered this year.
"We must learn to talk less and only communicate things when are very clear.This year we don't consider the global or household tax. Those who are now crying are the same who cut (incomes, ed. n.) in the past. Let's talk about solutions and leave the bad cards. Regardless of the side of the political spectrum we place ourselves, left or right, our common goal is the welfare of the Romanians," Eugen Teodorovici stressed.
