A commission of the Romanian Economy Ministry has analyzed a new law regulating the sale of goods under the duty-free regime and found it did not come against EU commercial rules, Romanian Economy minister Varujan Vosganian said on Monday, quoted by the NewsIn news agency.

The bill was signed into law earlier this month by interim President Nicolae Vacaroiu during his 1-month term in office as elected President Traian Basescu was out campaigning to be reconfirmed in office at the May 19 referendum.

Vacaroiu signed a degree that practically allowed duty-free shops restart activity at border points with non-EU member sttes. The decree approved a law that rejected a 2006 ordinance that banned such shops. President

Basescu has supported a complete ban on such commercial activities as he said they came against the letter of EU laws.
