  • The state social insurance budget, an additional RON 323 million for ensuring the needed amount to pay the social insurance pensions.

As in any amendment, there are also “ministries that have failed to fully spend a part of the money or, for some reasons, have no more the capacity to use this money by the end of the year”:

  • Ministry of Business Environment, Trade and Entrepreneurship (-RON 78.5 million)
  • Ministry of Public Finance (-RON 52.9 million)

According to the head of the executive, estimates for next year also look very well.

As we are talking about economic and budget increases, another bad news (…) – bad for those who do not love us, good for those who are in good faith: this year’s budget, the implementation of this year’s budget will close below 3% and (…) we are not very bad next year either, on the contrary, figures look very well,” said Mihai Tudose.
