The Interministerial Commission for the definition of the vulnerable consumer has started its activity. Established at the request of Prime Minister Viorica Dăncilă, the commission had a first meeting in August.
More than 20 participants – representatives of the Ministry of Energy, the Ministry of Labor, the Ministry of Finance, the associations of large consumers and suppliers (ACUE, AFEER), local authorities – reviewed the regulatory framework and agreed on what changes are needed, according to investenergy.ro.
The commission is headed by Florin Ciocănelea, secretary of state and Andreea Lambru, deputy secretary general of the Government. “The Prime Minister has approved the establishment of an inter-ministerial commission that, in the next two to three months, will continue to develop and finalize legislation for the vulnerable consumer, which I think will be welcome for many players in the market, including the economy,” said Florin Ciocănelea recently, at a conference.
It is thus hoped that by the end of the current year the problem of vulnerable consumers in Romania will be solved. It is a pressing problem that the Romanian authorities must solve quickly, this being also the request of the European Commission.
