Summary:

The growth outlook remains weak and uncertain. Romania’s decision to rely primarily on expenditure cuts to close the fiscal gap is ambitious, but entails implementation risks. Progress on fiscal reforms has resumed. In the medium term, fiscal policy should aim at a more permanent reduction in the fiscal deficit. The government’s proactive banking supervision, and regulation has helped maintain the stability of the financial system, but vigilance is essential. Pressing ahead with structural reforms is key for boosting growth and achieving sustainable real convergence.
