Stolojan pledges to focus on 2009 budget, reforms

BUCHAREST, Dec 10 (Reuters) - Romania's prime minister-designate Theodor Stolojan pledged on Wednesday to quickly draft a budget plan for next year and revive reforms, which were stalled in the last two years due to a policy logjam.

"We have two extremely urgent missions: the first is to prepare the 2009 budget draft and the second is to relaunch reforms essential for Romania's progress such as public administration, health and education," Stolojan said.

The 65-year-old economist spoke after being nominated prime minister by President Traian Basescu following a Nov. 30 election.
