Comm Min-Designate: Romania Not To Sell Posta Romana, To Keep Stake In RomtelecomPublish date: 23-12-2009
Romania's Communications and Information Society Minister-designate Gabriel Sandu on Tuesday said he does not plan to sell state-owned postal company Posta Romana during his mandate, but reorganize it, adding the ministry's stake in mainline operator Romtelecom will not be sold either.
Sandu also said the country's communications and economy ministries have worked on a project meant to grant facilities to IT companies in 2010, given the importance of the IT sector.
"Posta Romana shall not be sold during my term, as it will become a profit-yielding company upon reorganization," Sandu said, adding "the plan is to extend the company's services and operations and render its offices highly efficient."
Sandu also ruled out the possibility to sell the ministry's stake in hardline telephony operator Romtelecom or sell the national radio communications company Radiocom, one of the country's main providers of electronic communications networks and services.
Sandu stressed the ministry also plans to develop the e-Romania project in 2010 in order to have 50% of payments, including fines and various taxes, conducted via the country's electronic payment system.
According to Sandu, the ministry also plans to increase the number of public purchases via electronic system, to reach 30% of total public purchases.
