  • Ministry of Education, an additional RON 30 million in the balance, a supplement of RON 50 million for the payment of court decisions concerning the salary rights for the personnel from state university education institutions.
  • The budget of the single national health insurance fund received a supplement of RON 269.7 million for medical services and medicines.
  • 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)
  • Ministry of Regional Development, Public Administration and European Funds (-RON 43.7 million in the balance), with the mention that an extra RON 71.5 million has been allocated to the ministry for PNDL

Minister Ionut Misa concluded: “We are within the deficit of 2.96%, previously discussed with the international bodies, and this is a stability element at the macroeconomic level for Romania.”

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.
