Romanian state owns 216 companies, representing about 7% of Romania's GDP

July 21, 2022

The Romanian state owns 216 companies, which represent about 7% of the country's GDP, generated by these companies and 83,000 employees, said Mihai Calin Precup, secretary of state in the Ministry of Public Finance on Thursday, at “Roinvest”, an event organized by News.ro in partnership with Team Innovation Media and Plurivox, PR and communication agency.   In the past months, the government decided to reduce the distribution of dividends to the central budget to back investments at the level of strategic companies. From among energy producing companies, he mentioned Romgaz, Nuclearelectrica and Antibiotice Iasi in the health sector, which benefited from dividend cuts from 90% to 50%, which led to a stock plus of 900 million lei for investments of those companies.   “The government's role is to identify priority projects for Romania, to structure their financing and after that to leave private companies to manage and develop them. The government;s role is to make sure that the invested money had a multiplying effect, with higher impact on real economy,”the secretary of state added.   He said that quality human resources are needed to get involved in national projects and in state institutions.   “Roinvest”was organized by News.ro news agency, in partnership with Team Innovation Media and Plurivox PR and communication agency.
