Agriculture Minister-designate Daniel Constantin stated that lowering the VAT in the bakery industry, where tax evasion registers a level of 60 per cent, would bring to the light hundreds of millions of euros that are needed for improving the agricultural sector and for making other investments, Mediafax informs. “The proposal to cut the VAT to 9 per cent in the case of staple foodstuffs is a commitment discussed for a very long time and it remains for us to decide with the Finance Ministry when we will introduce this measure. I wanted to give an example this year, even though we are under the pressure of respecting the deficit target, to give towards the end of this year an example in the panification sector,” Constantin said.
