The business community has asked the future government, ahead of Sunday's general elections, to speed up infrastructure projects, to implement a private health insurance system, and to encourage investments.

Romanians are called to the polls on November 30 to choose their representatives in Parliament. Based on the election results, the next Prime Minister will be nominated and a new government appointed. Currently, the main candidates for the position of Prime Minister are the current government head, Calin Popescu Tariceanu, leader of the ruling Liberal Party (PNL), Theodor Stolojan, a leading member of the Democratic-Liberal Party (PD-L), and ex- Foreign Affairs Minister Mircea Geoana, who is leading the main opposition party, the Social Democrats (PSD).

All parties have come up with governing programs aimed at improving Romania's economic environment and providing better living standards for the country's citizens. Meanwhile, during Business Standard's Private Government project, some 150 businesspeople, both Romanian and expats, top managers of local companies, consultants and repre-sentatives of the academic environment had their say about measures that should be taken by the authorities to narrow the gap between Romania and developed states.
