Prime Minister Calin Popescu Tariceanu declared on Wednesday, after the Government session, that Romania has no structural problems at this moment. The head of Government said that he expects 2008 to be a year of economic growth. "It is normal to have the stock market reacting to the international problems, a fact that can be seen in the evolution of the national currency. But this is not the lowest level of the Romanian leu. It is the result of speculating actions", said Tariceanu.

"This year is another year of economic growth, the eighth in a row with significant growth, according to the data at the National Statistics Institute", the PM added. Even more, Tariceanu says that Romania will maintain a growth rate above the European average. "In 2007, the investments grew 25%, the highest level in Europe", Tariceanu emphasized.

As usual, Tariceanu accused president Basescu of causing negative effects in the economy, through the permanent political crisis he sustained. "In case Romania would have acted as a normal country, we would have benefited from more investments and out efforts would have been better repaid", Tariceanu said.
