The working government agenda for 2009 - 2012 states, in the "Culture and Cults" chapter, a series of objectives that also include the support of cultural and artistic diversity, the upgrade, renewal and adequate outfitting of cultural infrastructure, in accordance with international cultural realities. In addition, the government targets the "continuous professional upgrade" of staff in culture institutions.

As a final objective, the government agenda mentions the development of the partnership between the state and cults on the social, cultural and educational segment and "the support of the respect and cooperation network between cults for the benefit of the entire society."

Another intention is the construction of creation workshops in accordance with the demands of the plastic artists community, as well as the support of the partnership between the state and creation unions.
 
On the other hand, the new government also intends to upgrade and renovate theaters and philharmonics, construct new show halls in partnership with local public authorities and create multipurpose institutions (plays, ballet, visual arts, etc.).
 
Other directions included in the agenda concern the development of legislative initiatives for the salaries of staff in cultural institutions, the regulation of the artist’s statute in Romania and the inclusion of the material and immaterial cultural patrimony in national and international cultural tourism.
 
The new government also intends to support the presence and role of the church in society, starting from the acknowledgement of the church’s contribution to society’s common wellbeing, and support the development of religious communities, including among Romanians abroad.
 
At the same time, the agenda mentions the promotion of an active partnership between the state and cults, through the creation of social assistance centers, thus encouraging the social mission of the church and other cults.
