Romania must take big, gigantic steps regarding the Green Transition, otherwise we will deserve our fate, says Cristina Chiriac, president of the National Confederation for Female Entrepreneurship.
“I returned yesterday from Brussels, where was held an economic forum. There is such a big discrepancy in what is happening there and the level of discussions and strategies, as they are created, and the level which we have here in Romania, that I realize that this gap will probably deepen even more due to the lack of experts that Romania has. Because many of those who are very good at everything that Green Transition means are active today either in Brussels or in other countries and are brains that generate innovative ideas. Not only that is Brussels talking about green transition, they are talking about wind, nuclear energy sources, etc., an extremely distant universe from the point of view of Romanian strategy, as we see it perceived. It will be a ‘must’, and if Romania does not take big enough, gigantic steps…then know that we deserve our fate. And here we all have to compete, not just the Romanian state or only those who are on the side of NGOs or just a few enterprises,” said Cristina Chiriac, at the “Romania – Banking & Business” conference, organized by Oxygen Events.
She stated that everything should start with greening, and ways of restructuring the legislative framework should be thought of.
“We have to start with streamlining the bureaucratic framework, so that all these procedures that streamline and help implement the Green Transition are done in real time, not six months or a year from the date you submitted an application file,” said Cristina Chiriac.
The President of the National Confederation for Female Entrepreneurship participated in the “Romania-Belgium Economic Forum”, which took place in Brussels, between May 15-16, 2023.
The “Romania – Belgium Economic Forum” was organized by the Embassy of Romania in the Kingdom of Belgium, in cooperation with the Flemish Regional Government in Belgium, at the initiative of the National Confederation for Female Entrepreneurship – CONAF, with the aim of finding opportunities to consolidate and develop bilateral economic relations.
