Romania to maintain fiscal stimulus policy until 2020 -ruling party chief

BUCHAREST, May 23 (Reuters) - Romania’s government will maintain its policy of cutting taxes and raising the minimum wage and state pensions until 2020 in a bid to improve living standards, the leader of the ruling Social Democrats said on Wednesday.

The government could also make it optional to join a private pension scheme, said Liviu Dragnea, who holds a tight grip on his party and is also speaker of parliament’s lower house. (Reporting by Luiza Ilie Editing by Matthew Mpoke Bigg)
