Similarly, the Romanian Business Leaders decided to give a helping hand by communicating pro-vaccination and at the end of July they organize a digital campaign for the encouragement of vaccination in the places with population mostly non-vaccinated. But communication is not enough, we have the conviction that the government must follow the model of western countries and adopt firm measures for the increase of the degree of vaccination and the stop the increase of incidence, which could lead to the closing down of the economy and schools’ Dragos Petrescu, the chairman of RBL says.Romanian Business Leaders (RBL) is an apolitical organisation, non-governmental and non-profit which offers a platform for action and social involvement for 1,000+ entrepreneurs and top executives in the private business environment.RBL is a founding member of the Coalition for the Development of Romania (CDR), a private initiative which offers a coherent basis for consultation with the government and other public institutions on issues with impact on the economic and business climate in Romania.
