Romania will be able to collect funds from the European Commission in the first two years, based on the implementation of some steps or reforms that are not based on projects, announced the Secretary of State in the Ministry of European Investments and Projects, Marius Vasiliu, during the consultations on updating the National Recovery and Resilience Plan (PNRR).
These amounts can be considered as an advance for the assumed reforms, if they are preceded by the creation of an institutional and legislative framework through policies, strategies or normative acts.
According to the quoted source, PNRR and the financed reforms can be implemented until August 31, 2026.
The consultations for updating PNRR continued on Thursday at the headquarters of the Ministry of European Investments and Projects by debating the proposals for the following fields: business environment, entrepreneurial ecosystems, respectively research, innovation, digitalization.
During the debates, Marius Vasiliu, MIPE Secretary of State, insisted on the importance of PNRR from the perspective of the necessary reforms for Romania. “Compared to what I said yesterday regarding the European Commission’s criticisms of the transmitted pieces, we are trying to correlate the list of investments with the provisions of the Regulation and with the requests of the European Commission,” said the MIPE Secretary of State.
During the debate on Business Environment, Entrepreneurial Ecosystems, the representatives of the Ministry of Economy proposed that financial instruments be financed through PNRR, but also the simplification of the life of entrepreneurs through digitalization.
