Transmitting hope today, to build the Europe of tomorrow

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 18 giugno 2013

Ten years after the publication of the Apostolic Exhortation “Ecclesia in Europa”, the operators of social communications have examined the challenges facing the Church’s missionary work in Europe today. The annual meeting of the Spokesperson and Press Officers promoted by CCEE took place June 12 through 15 in Bucharest, Romania, at the invitation of the Archbishop of the Romanian Capital City and President of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of Romania, Mgr. Ioan Robu.Jesus Christ, who lives in his Church, is a source of hope for Europe. Today, more than ever, the message of hope of the Apostolic Exhortation seems prophetic and topical for Europe. Our Continent, in fact, seems to go through a time of bewilderment and dimming of hope. In this phase of crisis, many people feel confused and disappointed by the institutions and have lost the points of reference that had so far withstood our societies of the Old Continent. The Europe of 2013 seems to be run through more by a wave of uncertainty then by the desire of future….
In the last few years, several elements testify the changes in progress in the fields of politics, economy and law. We are witnessing, for example, a multiplication of rights: the so-called new rights – i.e., individual rights – which are the very fruits of a society where ….
Gender theory, euthanasia and culture of death During the meeting we also analyzed topics such as the gender theory, euthanasia, and the language of the culture of death. It is particularly significant to note ….

Romania Modernizes Revenue Administration

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 30 aprile 2013

WASHINGTON.The World Bank’s Board of Executive Directors today approved the EUR70 million Revenue Administration Modernization project for Romania. Through this project, the World Bank is partnering with the country to increase effectiveness and efficiency in the collection of taxes and social contributions; increase tax compliance; and reduce the administrative burden on taxpayers to comply with their responsibilities under the tax laws. The National Agency for Fiscal Administration (NAFA) will manage the implementation of the project.Modernization of revenue administration is an important component of the Government’s economic reform program. Despite recent fiscal adjustment efforts, the external environment in Europe and weak growth in Romania will continue to pose a risk to macroeconomic stability. Given the limited headroom for new spending there is a strong interest in improving the efficiency and effectiveness of revenue collection. The government of Romania places importance on an effective tax administration that can encourage voluntary compliance and deal with tax evasion in a more efficient and technology-aided environment.The World Bank’s Doing Business Report 2013 shows that in Romania there is still much to be done to improve the ease of paying taxes and reduce the high number of tax payments. Also, Romania has a large number of small taxpayers facing a complex tax regime – both taxpayers and NAFA must use resources to manage their responsibilities disproportionate to the revenue contribution made by this segment of the economy.Revenue performance gains during the boom years of 2004-07 were modest with the revenue-GDP ratio rising from 27.2 to 29.0 percent; while revenue losses during the recession were severe, with tax-GDP ratio dropping back to 27.2 percent in 2010. Romania’s tax efficiency index is one of the lowest in EU countries, at 54 percent and 61 percent for VAT and social contributions respectively.Investments in key government institutions, including and not limited to revenue administration, are an important pre-condition for Romania to continue its convergence with the European Union.A modernized NAFA means one that is more efficient and effective. In general, a modern tax administration will seek to minimize direct contact with the taxpayer, and taxpayer service is provided through the use of a robust self-service website, through an accessible call center, and other means available. Reduced physical contact also minimizes opportunities for corrupt behavior. The project will implement an improved taxpayer service function to meet these challenges. Once the project will be completed, NAFA staff will be properly trained and distributed across the organization, with a focus on staff re-assignment to key areas such as audit and debt collection.The development of the project design has been informed by past work, including a recent World Bank functional review of the Ministry of Public Finance, several International Monetary Fund (IMF) diagnostic reports, and various European Union (EU) studies. There are four main project components: (1) institutional development; (2) increasing operational effectiveness and efficiency; (3) taxpayer services and corporate communication; and (4) project coordination and management. The loan is a LIBOR-based Euro single currency IBRD Flexible Loan plus fixed spread, with 12-year maturity, including a five-year grace period, with level repayment pattern. The expected effectiveness date is October 2013.
