Romania needs an optimal adjustment of the economy which should target public spneding, especially of those that do not create jobs or future incomes, Romanian Central Bank Governor Mugur Isarescu declared in a speech at a Bucharest University.

If authorities will not cut public spending, they will have to increase taxes, he added. Plus, he explained that an increase in taxes would be the last thing needed in a recession. If taxes will not be increased, the market will react by a tough adjustment. He warned that talks need to have no electoral purposes and without emotions.
