The two sectors, energy and gas, ensured support for the increase of industrial production, Economy Minister Adriean Videau said. The Investment Fund, proposed by the government was supposed to be set up by the minority shares the state owns in companies and money obtained from previous privatizations.

Videanu explained that investments in 2010 will reach 8.4 billion lei, a 65% increase compared to 2009. Sources have already been identified: of this sum, only 369 million are allocated from the budget, the rest come from own attracted funds. The public-private partnership we propose is very important. Currently, we propose projects worth 3 billion euro.

In his opinion, investment priorities are the energy sector, gas and oil, mineral sources and defense.
