After the Executive's meeting on Wednesday, in which a decision should have been made regarding the first car registration tax, Government officials announced that a final word has yet to come, in about 1 or 2 weeks. Romanian officials do not seem to agree which calculus model to choose. Development Minister Laszlo Borbely declared that Hungarian Democrats proposed several measures to reduce the tax value. The new options will be analyzed this week.

Economy Minister, Varujan Vosganian declared after the Government's meeting that the ordinance draft regarding the pollution tax will be presented to all parliamentary parties but its a decision will be taken in 1 to 2 weeks.

However, the Government was compelled by its European counterparts to take a decision by January 31. Romanian officials seem confused and undecided, even if the Economy Ministry has already published an Ordinance project outlining a preferred calculus model.
