The salary raises decided by the Government are based on the economic growth that has been registered over the past few years and not on popular criteria, according to those declared by PM Calin Popescu Tariceanu, who said that the statements related to this topic, made by National Bank of Romania (BNR) Governor, were "taken out of the context".

He showed that the Executive decision to raise pensions and salaries was based on the economic growth outcomes of the last few years, being implemented carefully, without any excess, and he specified that such measures needed to be correlated with the productivity index also. "If we open our treasury gates for non sustainable salary policies, then everything that was built in the past eight years would collapse from one year to another", Tariceanu said.

He specified that the statements on this topic made by National Bank Governor were "taken out of the context", and he said that one should have kept in mind, in his opinion, that BNR and Government cooperate well, both institutions having their own responsibilities. BNR Governor, Mugur Isarescu, declared on Thursday that Romania needed a list of priorities in relation to the future measures addressing salary and pension raise along with taxation cutting, pursuit of economic growth being possible only conditional upon having a reasonable policy. "The message conveyed by National Bank is: . We cannot have salary raises, pension raises and taxation cutting. One needs to draft a priority list", Isarescu said in a workshop on business topics.
