The future law on public-private partnerships in Romania will differentiate between projects that can be implemented locally and those that need the Government’s approval, according to Ilan Laufer, the minister for business environment. The draft law could be launched into public debate next week, he added.
The new version of the bill draws a difference between local projects and projects that need to get the Government's approval. For example, a EUR 10 million doesn’t have to pass twice through the Government, said Laufer. On the other side, the Government's approval is necessary for a EUR 100 million project. This will also allow local authorities to implement public-private partnership projects.
