The government’s decision to eliminate heating subsidies to the population starting this year will have an impact over this year’s inflation rate that already reached 8.3% in April, IMF chief of mission in Romania said quoted by news agency Mediafax.

Reuters notes that Romania applied last year tough austerity measures including salary cuts and VAT increases that increased inflation.
