Romanian Business Leaders organization encourages the Romanian Government to take firm action as the Romanian business environment and society as a whole can no longer afford to bear the cost of closing schools and new restrictions affecting the economy, reads a press release of the organization. According to the source, in the first part of 2021 the Romanian economy recovered the loss from 2020 and it is in everyone's interest that this trend be maintained so as to return to normalcy. As hospitals prepare for a new wave of serious cases, business leaders call on the government to speed up vaccination, the only scientifically validated method that can protect the society. "We welcome the incentives announced by the Government, such as the granting of meal vouchers and the organization of lotteries. In fact, Romanian Business Leaders has decided to lend a helping hand in pro vaccination communication and as of end July has been running a digital campaign to encourage vaccination in environments with a predominantly unvaccinated population. However, communication is not enough, we are convinced that the Government must follow the model of Western countries and take firm measures to increase vaccination rate and prevent an increase in incidence, which could again lead to the closing of the economy and schools. Vaccination will help limit the costs for society as a whole, in addition to the direct effects in public health," said Dragos Petrescu, RBL president.
