Among the topics we addressed were the involvement of the business community in the sustainable development of the Romanian economy, identifying support by improving the legislation in the field, measures aimed at reducing public expenses, combatting tax evasion and repealing some tax incentives, as well as the need to start a regular dialogue with the business community to re-establish a tax system on a fair basis,” Ciuca wrote in a social media post.
