Governor, National Bank of Romania Mugur Isarescu of Romania

Referring to the current account deficit, as a reflection of the macroeconomic skidding felt since as early as last summer, Mugur Isarescu said the problem is the way it is financed, rather than its sheer size.
Governor Mugur Isarescu took part on Wednesday in a workshop on The National Bank of Romania Archives.
Governor of the National Bank of Romania (BNR) Mugur Isarescu deems that the incumbent economic crisis which affects at present the international markets will not lead to the diminution of the inflationist pressures and Romania has to continue the structural reforms that should lead to the curbing of the current account deficit.
Governor Isarescu said that Romania has to curb the current account deficit, considering the lack of balance is no longer accepted, allowing for the fact that the current account deficit reached 20 billion euros, two thirds of the GDP in 2000.
The Romanian National Bank (BNR) will support the Government's budget projections, aimed at maintaining an economic growth mix and ensuring the country's stability, against the international economic downturn, BNR governor Mugur Isarescu said on Thursday, after meeting Premier Emil Boc at the Central Bank's headquarters.
Early this year Isarescu had consultations with the Finance Minister Gheorghe Popa, aimed at harmonizing the joint measures and completing the macroeconomic indicator forecast for 2009, to found the budget.
Mugur Isarescu is keen to underline the importance of the reforms the central bank went through: What we need are strong institutions, with good reputation, and this institution is going to be one of them.

Isarescu is competent and able to solve the difficult issues posed by Romania's transition towards a free-market, democratic system," Manolescu told Reuters.
Isarescu has pledged to tame inflation and keep the economy on a recovery course this year, after three straight years of decline, and to pursue the medium-term reform programme he cleared with the European Union in March, when Romania started accession talks with the 15-nation bloc.
