AmCham Advocacy Flash: Highlights of Recent Initiatives

April 6, 2021

  • On March 30th AmCham organized a Q&A session on the topic of vaccination with Dr. Andrei Baciu (State Secretary in the Ministry of Health and VP of the National Committee for the COVID-19 Vaccination). The event was open to the AmCham community at large and tackled issues such as the state of play and logistics of the vaccination campaign, the prospects for organizing vaccination centres at the workplace in the near future and the outlook for the post-vaccination context.

As a follow-upAmCham is drafting a letter to the Ministry of Health regarding vaccination at the workplace in order to support the authorities to draft the norms of implementation of such facilities to allow them to be fully operational and efficient. A first draft is available here & we welcome additional proposals and questions from companies interested to organize vaccination centres within their premises. Please send your input by Wednesday, April 7, EOB to our colleague Raluca Manea, Coordinator of the AmCham Health Committee.

If you missed the webinar, the recording is available here.

  • On March 31, 2021 the AmCham Corporate Governance Committee met with Mr. Andrei Furduri, Director, Ministry of Justice, Ms. Lorena Sava and Mr. Razvan Bostinaru, Ministry of Justice and discussed the status of the transposition of the EU Directive on the Protection of Whistleblowers and the National Anti-Corruption Strategy.
