  1. 1. Bucharest, 28/06/2016 OECD Deputy Secretary-General Mari Kiviniemi and Competition Council President Bogdan Chiritoiu launch results of the 12-month OECD Competition Assessment project in Romania which aimed at identifying competition- distorting rules and provisions in the sectors of construction, freight transport and food processing.
  2. 2. “[I’d like to] stress the importance of the evaluation report. The sectors [studied] represent 12% of the GDP and employ 10% of the workforce, but their performances are far below the international average, precisely due to bureaucratic barriers, “for which people pay“. Costin Borc, Vice-Prime Minister of Romania and Minister of Economy, Commerce and Relations with Business Environment 28 June 2016
  3. 3. "There are still factors in Romania, which make it hard to eliminate the gaps between Romania and other economies of the European Union. Weak competitiveness in some industries is one of them” Mari Kiviniemi, OECD Deputy Secretary-General
  4. 4. "[…] this project is welcomed and underlined the Chamber of Commerce and Industry’s orientation towards collaboration with the public institutions for the development of competition in the market“. Mihai Daraban, Executive director, Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Romania; then left to right: Costin Bork, Romanian Vice-Prime Minister and Minister of Economy, Commerce and Relations with Business Environment ; Bogdan Chiritoiu, President of the Romanian Competition Council
  5. 5. “Creating a competitive environment means a joint effort from all stakeholders – companies and authorities – to ensure citizens’ welfare. […] We will provide all support required for the implementation of the OECD Recommendations“. Bogdan Chiritoiu, President of the Romanian Competition Council 28 June 2016
  6. 6. “If all […] recommendations are fully implemented, we estimate that Romanian consumers would be better off by more than EUR 434 million a year. The economy-wide benefits from increased productivity could ultimately have an even greater impact.”
