Economic growth of 5% is achievable, Daniel Lorer, Minister of Innovation and Growth, has told BNR.

"By creating a new image as a country where there is no corruption and where the state promotes business instead of hindering it, the 5% target is achievable and we should not look further than neighbouring Romania to see a successful example of how they can to achieve levels of 7% ", the Minister said.

The Ministry of Innovation and Growth and the Investment Agency will be the spearhead of this new policy, the minister hopes. Lorer pointed out that increased investment activity will encourage the state to repair local roads so that businesses can function better.
