Florin Jianu: the lack of the support of entrepreneurship is the real drama of the Romanian society
The lack of support of entrepreneurship is the real drama of the Romanian society, drama which the representatives of the authorities must be aware of in order to bring adequate measures to encourage the setting up of new companies and the extension of the development of the existing ones, considers the former minister of the business environment, commerce and entrepreneurship Florin Jianu.
According to a press release of the National Council of the Small and Medium private companies in Romania (CNIPMMR) which quotes the data offered by the National Office of the Commerce Register in January 2017 recorded the smallest number of recordings of natural persons and judicial persons (5,475) as compared to the same period of last year (8,288) dropping by 33.94%.
The counties which registered the biggest drop were Vrancea (56.19%), Cara?-Severin (47,67%) and Ialomi?a ( 46,46%).
‘The only county which had positive dynamics was Tulcea, with a value of 4,69% due, to our mind, to the putting into practice of the only financial instrument Integrated Territorial investments (ITI) of Romania worth over 1.1 billion euro’, says CNIPMMR.
According to the quoted source, the first three domains of activity the most affected are represented by the financial intermediation and insurances (-86.52%)public administration and defence, social insurances in the public system (-71/43%) and health and social assistance (-57.38%). At the same time, a worrying drop is seen in the IT domain (-36.76%), the press release shows.
’I consider there are three main causes which led to the drastic drop in the number of registered companies at the beginning of this year. The first is represented by instability and lack of predictability in society, fact which determined that the business environment react rapidly and become vulnerable. Equally, I consider that bureaucracy (for example, the effects of form 088) and the lack of prevention in the checking activities of state institutions represent another obstacle in stimulating the setting up of new companies. Last but not least, the weak accessibility of national funds and the non-accession of European funds contributed considerably to the drop in attractiveness of setting up new companies. The lack of support for entrepreneurship is the real drama of the Romanian society, drama which the representatives of the authorities must be aware of to bring adequate measures to encourage the setting up of new companies and the extension of the development of the already existing ones’ Florin Jianu said.
