The Romanian authorities are considering the possibility that foreign tourists who want to visit Romania will necessarily present a negative COVID test at the entrance to the country, said on Monday the Minister of Economy, Business Environment and Tourism, Claudiu Nasui, participant in an event marking the completion of the central fuselage of the experimental high-speed helicopter RACER, in Romaero, according to AGERPRES.

On leaving, Nasui was asked by the journalists about the Government’s strategy regarding tourism in the coming season, namely whether there will be a vaccination passport.

“We don’t have an answer to that question yet. I can tell you that we are discussing that Romanians should be free to travel as much as possible and not only Romanians, but also foreign tourists who come to us. There must be a way to recognize each other, to know what an antibody test, a negative COVID test mean, for example, or that the vaccination process has taken place with approved vaccines. I mean some mutual recognition, bilateral at least, of some documents,” Nasui said.

The discussions so far have taken place within the governing coalition, but also with several ambassadors, the minister said, refusing to elaborate what countries it is about.

“There are several discussions at EU level, but at the moment we do not have their conclusion. As a minister, my wish is for people to be able to go on holidays as easily as possible and our industry can take advantage. The economy benefits from tourism, it’s basically like an export, that the world comes and leaves its currency here,” the government official continued.

This week, Nasui will meet with the Greek Minister of Tourism. Asked what they will talk about, the minister replied: “Let’s see what documents we can recognize from each other, just to make this opening as soon as possible.”

At the same time, when asked if foreign tourists will have to submit a negative test upon entering Romania, Nasui said: “I don’t know how to put it, but we are talking about it and we are analyzing it, for sure”.

Formula 1: Motivul pentru care Fernando Alonso a decis să-și scoată la licitație casca pe care o va purta în MP al SUA

De

Fernando Alonso, pilotul echipei Alpine, a decis să-și scoată la licitație casca pe care o va purta în acest weekend în Marele Premiu de Formula 1 al Statelor Unite. Motivul este strângerea de bani pentru victimele erupției recente a vulcanului Cumbre Vieja din Spania.

Pe spatele căştii sunt desenate vulcanul care aruncă lavă, o inimă şi numele insulelor Canare în zona inferioară.

La începutul lunii noiembrie, casca va fi scoasă la licitaţie iar banii vor fi oferiţi celor care au avut de suferit în urma erupţiei vulcanului.

”Suntem extrem de ataşaţi de această insulă din Spania, este o destinaţie turistică iar fosta mea soţie era din insulele Canare. Tot ce s-a întâmplat acolo, cu vulcanul care erupe şi lava distrugând case şi pământuri, m-a făcut să port această cască”, a explicat Fernando Alonso, de două ori campion mondial.

Vulcanul Cumbre Vieja a început să erupă pe 19 septembrie şi continuă să expulzeze lavă.

Deşi erupţia nu a provocat victime, lava a devastat 763 de hectare de pământ şi a distrus 1.956 de clădiri, între care sute de case, potrivit ultimelor cifre oferite de guvernul spaniol. În total, aproape 7.000 de persoane au fost evacuate din cauza erupţiei pe insula cu aproape 85.000 de locuitori, conform Agerpres.

MP al Statelor Unite a început vineri cu sesiunile de antrenamente. Competiția va continua sâmbătă cu sesiunile de calificare, iar duminică, de la ora 22:00, se va desfășura cursa.

PNL to come up with gov’t list Monday evening or Tuesday, also negotiate with USR

De

National chairman of the National Liberal Party (PNL) Florin Citu said on Friday, after a meeting with Hungarian Democratic Union of Romania (UDMR) national leader Kelemen Hunor that discussions on a governing agenda started, and on Monday a list of the government members will be completed, and a vote on it may follow on Thursday, agerpres reports.

Citu said that the prime minister-designate is responsible for negotiating to mount a parliamentary majority in order for the government to clear Parliament, mentioning that he does not have a pact with the Social Democratic Party (PSD) and that he will discuss parliamentary support with the Save Romanian Union (USR).
“We have started talks on a government agenda; we have not discussed or negotiated new ministries. Today it was just a discussion about the government agenda. (…) I think the schedule goes like this: tomorrow the government agenda, after that we talk about portfolios, and that will be simple because we have six portfolios there, all important; after that, on Monday evening or Tuesday, we come up before Parliament: realistically speaking, I think that on Wednesday there will be committee hearings and a vote on Thursday. Let everyone be realistic and understand that,” said Citu.

Asked if PNL is willing to give up important ministries, Citu said: “We have six ministries there, we will see. Let’s get there; first we do the government agenda tomorrow; rest assured that there will be a government agenda that meets the needs and emergencies facing Romania today: healthcare, and energy. We have a discussion on portfolios and names in the coming days, and you will see them, it is not that much until Monday.”

The PNL leader said, when asked if he will negotiate with PSD, that “negotiations and the majority is the responsibility of the prime minister, who will negotiate with lawmakers to mount a majority for the vote.”

“For support in Parliament, I think we will also discuss with USR,” added Citu.

He said that PNL does not make any pact with PSD.

“No pact is made [with PSD]. We will go before the Romanian Parliament. There is no pact with PSD, we will go to Parliament and USR has a chance to vote on this government. To be very clear: we are here today because USR voted a PSD motion,” added Citu.

Citu and Prime Minister-designate Nicolae Ciuca had a meeting with UDMR leader Kelemen Hunor on Friday, at the PNL headquarters, to discuss putting together a government.
