2017 has been a year of changes and future project setting in the regulated gambling market of Romania. Ms. Odeta Nestor has been replaced by Mr. Dan Iliovici at the Head of the Romanian National Office for Gambling and it seems that the Romanian market is still in climb with more and more operators and vendors approaching the market.
During a recent interview in Issue 6 of EEGReport Magazine, we have asked Mr. Iliovici about what are the major projects that he would like to implement as the President of the Romanian National Gambling Office?
Mr Iliovici has replied the following: “Together with all my colleagues from the National Gambling Office (NGO), we aim to build new stages of performance which will sustain the industry at the level it has reached and why not, even raise the bar higher. This way we assure the predictability on the long run for both sides of the industry: the operators and the players. We would like to make sure that the Romanian gambling industry can provide a safe business environment which is stable and transparent.
We have also set ourselves to reduce the bureaucracy, and one of the first steps will be the use of an efficient IT infrastructure and an information sharing. We would like to make the information much more accessible for the industry and for everyone involved (operators, players, the public and mainstream media). We must, and I strongly believe in this, become a example for an efficient and modern interaction with all stakeholders of our industry.
One of the most important projects is the establishment of the foundation for a socially responsible gaming. From the beginnings of my activity in the gambling industry I was extremely involved in assistance of the problem gamblers as well as on the prevention and education of the risks associated with gambling. This program will benefit from all the power and authority of the institution I represent.”
