The Romanian Government’s economic growth estimate seems “unrealistic”, said presidential adviser Cosmin Marinescu.
He explained that the Presidency worries that the country will reduce investments to a level even lower than in 2016, reports local media.
The presidential adviser added that all the international forecasts indicate an economic growth rate of under 4% for Romania, this year, whereas the current Government expects a 5.2% growth.
“It’s not clear why the estimate has been increased in just two months from 4.3% to 5.2%,” the presidential adviser added. The measures adopted by the new Government will have a budget impact of RON 8.44 billion (EUR 1.8 billion), according to the presidency.
