Minister Liviu Dragnea: Regionalization is a strategic decision Romania needs

Regionalization is a strategic decision, not a political one, which Romania badly needs, said vice-prime minister and Minister of Regional Development and Public Administration Liviu Dragnea on Friday during an economic seminar

'Regionalization is a strategic decision, not a political one and is a process Romania needs. Regionalization started to be worked at by a serious group to whom some experts will join the days to come. I did not believe I will find someone more radical in decentralizing than myself. We need decentralizing, because now, 23 years after the revolution, no matter what governments have ruled, no one had the power or will to break the administration system we inherited from Ceausescu. There is the same pyramidal concept of civil servants. The people changed but the system remained more rigid and bureaucratic. Ponta II Government aims to change this system. Regionalization is part of civilization,' said Dragnea.
 

According to the official, an analysis of what should remain at central level will be performed next, and the route of documents can be shortened regarding European funds.

 

'We will perform an analysis to see what should remain at central level. The public administration will lie with the central authorities, villages, towns, cities. As for drawing EU funds, I have noticed large delays at the ministry. There is no real possibility that these periods should reduce more than they would do in the past month. Therefore we have two or three months of delays and another two or three generated by a tough relation with Brussels. Creating administrative authorities aim a easier dialogue between these and Brussels. Unfortunately, decentralization has not been wanted by now. Another target is a unique counter. A unique counter cannot be made unless we make administrative decentralization. The concept that the Romanian citizen should know the legislation and the entire intricate labyrinth should disappear. On the 112 model, a citizen comes to the counter and the system works for him,' stressed Liviu Dragnea.
