     The Romanian gambling sector has the best regulations in Europe, which has been admitted in the meetings which the National Gambling Office (ONJN) had at the level of the European Commission and the events it has attended, according to Odeta Nestor, the president of the Office. Besides, all the representatives of the sector, claim, in unison, that in its current form, the legislation in effect is known as being one of the most advanced internationally.
     Nevertheless, there are still small improvements that could be made to the new legislation, especially when it comes to online gambling. Concerning this aspect, Odeta Nestor told us: "I think that an amendment of the Fiscal Code, to implement retention tax for players, would be the best. Besides, the office has made this kind of proposals for the amendment of the legislation, because I have noticed, based on the functionality of the last few years, that everyone would benefit more through this kind of taxation system: players would be taxed correctly, and the state would earn more in taxes. Right now, aside from the fact that there are players who don't report the entirety of their own gambling revenues, this process is also bureaucratic and difficult".
     Mr. Cristian Pascu, the president of the Association of Gambling Organizers and Manufacturers (AOPJNR), told us: "We have learned from the shortcomings of older regulations and we have benefited from the comparative study of laws from other countries, adapted to our specific circumstances. Of course we have proposals for legislative improvement and such proposals will constantly appear in this sector that is so dynamic".
     According to the president of the ONJN, the Romanian legislation has been designed based on international criteria, but has been adapted to the specific circumstances of the market.
     A novelty here is the licensing of a number of five certification companies - some of the most important on a global level.
     These companies, that have obtained a 2nd class license, are: NMI Metrology&Gaming Limited, eGaming Compliance Services Limited and Gaming Associates Europe of the UK, GLI LLC of Holland and BMM Spain Testlabs of Spain.
     Odeta Nestor told us: "There are some of the most well-known companies in the sector in Europe and in the world - professional laboratories that have come to Romania following the trend and the requirements of the European Commission for the liberalization of the market, as well as the requirements of our own market. More specifically, the number of employees of the Romanian Legal Metrology Office has remained the same, but the sector has evolved, the market has grown, meaning that it was necessary for several certification entities to exist. Furthermore, the certification entities conduct those technical check-ups of the gambling machines, meaning that it is important for this segment, of slot machine verification, to exist in Romania.
     As far as the estimates for the current year, the representatives of Rombet estimate that the most dynamic segment, in 2017, will be represented by the appearance of new companies with Class II license specialized in the certification and auditing of traditional gambling machines and online systems, those that monitor gambling, according to the legislation in effect. 

     Gambling organizers, as well as the heads of the ONJN request the implementation of withholding tax for players.

     * Minister Toma Petcu, former ministers Răzvan Nicolescu and Victor Grigorescu, the representatives of the state in the executive structure of OMV Petrom and Mihai Busuioc, the president of the Court of Auditors were heard today in the Investigation Commission
       The executives of OMV Petrom mentioned, in a letter addressed to the parliament, the existence of four lawsuits brought by the National Energy Regulation Authority (ANRE) and of seven audits by the Authority, between 2012-2017, as the recent request for information by the Commission for the Investigation of the activity of the ANRE targeted a period of 12 years, from 2015 to 2017.  details

THE EURO AT AN ALL-TIME HIGH
     * Vasilescu: "We cannot say that the currency market has gone off the rails, the exchange rate has moved 4 bani in 4 days"
     * "Perhaps it is a simple coincidence the fact that on November 8th was approved the Emergency Ordinance of the Fiscal Code and it was also on that day that the Euro rose past 4.6 lei", said Mr. Vasilescu
       The leu yesterday reached a historic low against the Euro, 4.6495 lei/Euro, up 1.05 over the previous meeting, marking the fourth day where the exchange rate was above 4.6 lei.  details
13.11.2017
     In October, the Romanian Commercial Bank, through Schoenherr și Asociații, has submitted, with the County Court of Bihor, a request for the insolvency of the European Drinks group, owned by the Micula brothers.

     * Sevil Shhaideh and Radu-Spiridon Cojocaru, the representatives of the state on the Supervisory Board of OMV Petrom, also called in for hearings
     * Costin: "We have notified the Audit Body of the Prime-Minister"
       The management of OMV Petrom, namely Mrs. Mariana Gheorghe, as well as the representatives of the Romanian state on the Supervisory Board of OMV Petrom, Sevil Shhaideh and Radu-Spiridon Cojocaru will be invited to appear in the hearings on the Investigation Commission for the activity of the ANRE, the members of the Commission decided on Thursday.  details
09.11.2017
     * The fear that wages will drop is unjustified
       The government's proposal to transfer the social security contributions exclusively to the employee is not at all a social-democratic measure and not even one of redistribution, rather it is one of an ultra-liberal nature, which leaves the employer in the unique position in Europe of not contributing in no way whatsoever to the social security systems (retirement and unemployment) or healthcare.  details
08.11.2017
     * A 39% stake belongs to Russian millionaire Sergey Lobanov, who is being criminally investigated in Russia for alcohol contraband
       Banca Transilvania intends to buy an initial stake of over 39% of Victoriabank, the third largest bank in the Republic of Moldova, and together with the EBRD, would own a majority stake, according to a press release sent yesterday.  details
07.11.2017
     * Brokers: The depreciation of EL, amid the drop in the market, as well as due to deal with the FP
     * Adrian Simionescu: "Investors feel the price at which EL has acquired from the Proprietatea Fund its stakes is very high and unjustified"
     * The FP-Electrica deal, among the topics of the PNL vote of no-confidence against Energy minister Toma Petcu
       It seems the stock market did not take kindly to the approval of the transaction by which "Electrica" acquires the stakes of the Proprietatea Fund in its branches, at least for now, because EL stock dropped abruptly, immediately after the general shareholder meeting of October 26th.  details
06.11.2017
     Finally, after many statements concerning the fundamental changes in the fiscal policy, announced from one day to the next and then denied, we have the argumentation note and the draft of the emergency ordinance to amend the Tax Code published, which the Ministry of Public Finance will apply starting with the beginning of next year.  details

PSD SENATOR EUGEN TEODOROVICI:
     * "The MADR made a «shopping list» of projects - with local level libraries and a ferry for crossing the Danube"
     * "Within three years at most, Romania can draw 3 billion Euros in European funds"
     * "Unfortunately, Romania promotes politicians instead of promoting specialists"
       Romania has embarrassed itself with the proposals that had been initially prepared for the Juncker plan, said Eugen Teodorovici. Mr. Teodorovici is the president of the Budget and Finance Commission of the Romanian Senate, member of the European Affairs Commission and former minister of European Funds.  details

     * Two months have passed since Sobolewski's term expired
       Even though the management of the Bucharest Stock Exchange has not been officially announced, the result of the interviews for the position of CEO held on September 25th, it seems that already a new search has been launched, which focuses on the banking sector.  details
27.10.2017
     * Lucian Bode: "I have great doubts that the state will come out a winner from the FP-Electrica transaction and I don't think that this acquisition constitutes a zero priority for the company"
     * Gabriel Dumitrașcu: "I hope that by tomorrow (ed. note: today) at 10:00, the ASF will issue a statement, otherwise it means Mircea Ursache is reckless"
       The General Shareholder Meeting of Electrica set to take place today announces itself very interesting as, on the agenda, it includes the election of the members of the Board of Directors by applying the cumulative voting method, as well as approving the acquisition by Electrica of the stakes of the Proprietatea Fund (21% each) in the distribution subsidiaries of Muntenia Nord, Transilvania Nord, Transilvania Sud and Electrica Furnizare, for a price of 752,031,841 lei, a cost higher by 60 million for the company compared to the failed negotiation of March 2016.  details
