A valuable dynamic partnership among the OECD, the Romanian Government and the Competition Council was launched
Worldwide recognized for ensuring a unique forum and knowledge hub (for data and analysis, exchange of experiences, best-practice sharing, and advice on public policies and global standard-setting), the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) is continuing to be at the heart of international co-operation (https://www.oecd.org/about/). Romania’s accession to the OECD is a priority of our foreign policy.
On January 28, 2020 at Victoria Palace in Bucharest, the headquarters of the Romanian Government, the official launch of the technical assistance project entitled “Comprehensive redesign of the licensing system in Romania” (the simplification of the licensing system of entrepreneurial activity in all sectors of the Romanian economy), carried out by OECD, project run by the Romanian Competition Council and the General Secretariat of the Romanian Government, took place – this remarkable project being financed through the Structural Reform Support Programme (SRSP) of the European Commission.
The special event benefited from the participation of Mr. Ludovic Orban, Romanian Prime Minister (who had made highly pertinent remarks within this special framework, and congratulated the Romanian Competition Council for its continuously responsible involvement), Mr. Álvaro Santos Pereira, OECD’s Director of the Country Studies Branch (who also congratulated the Romanian Competition Council, and highlighted that Bogdan M. Chiriţoiu, President of the Romanian Competition Council, was a leader in developing a successful relationship with OECD), Mr. Kaspar Richter, Head of Unit Growth and Business Environment (REFORM.03), The Directorate-General for Structural Reform Support (DG REFORM), European Commission, Mr. Bogdan M. Chiriţoiu, President of the Romanian Competition Council (who thanked the Romanian Government for hosting the special event and strongly supporting this project), Mr. Ionel Danca, Head of the Chancellery of the Prime Minister (with the rank of Minister), Coordinator of the relationship between Romania and OECD, and Mr. Liviu Rogojinaru, Secretary of State, Ministry of Economy, Energy and the Business Environment.
There is no doubt that the impact of such a valuable dynamic partnership will be tremendous (favorable impact on the business friendly environment), confirming the importance of focusing on what is truly important and creating more value, on the basis of key principles and best-practice. It is also worth remembering the title of a book appeared after the beginning of our transition to a market economy: “The Public Sector: Challenge for Coordination and Learning” (1. Public administration; 2. Bureaucracy; 3. Policy sciences), Editor: Franz-Xaver Kaufmann (De Gruyter studies in organization; Walter de Gruyter • Berlin • New York 1991; Library of Congress Cataloging-in-Publication Data).
