Priority question for written answer  P-000183/2022
to the Commission
Rule 138
Victor Negrescu (S&D)
 Answer in writing 
 Subject: NRRP pension reform

Romania's National Recovery and Resilience Plan includes several pension reform provisions that risk affecting millions of recipients.

1. The NRRP stipulates that pensions may not exceed 9.4% of GDP, although the European average is much higher and pensions in Romania are below the minimum subsistence level. On 10 January 2022, former minister Cristian Ghinea declared: ‘And I'll tell you something else: 9.4% of GDP is a political success, because the Commission proposal was a good deal lower.’ Is it true that the Commission representatives called for this percentage or a lower one? What was the position of the Romanian representatives?

2. NRRP proposals have also been made for the compulsory staggering of the second pillar pension entitlements (as opposed to a full payout). What view does the European Commission take of this?
