How to move forward Romania’s growth story at the 4th edition of Foreign Investors Summit
31st October 2017 - 2nd November 2017
Business Review magazine announces the 4th edition of the Foreign Investors Summit, the most complex B2B event dedicated to increasing Romania’s competitiveness. From October 31st until November 2nd, this is Where Romania Means Business: 3 days for exclusive content sharing and proficient insights, 500 participants to do business with, 5 industries capable of moving forward Romania’s growth story, over 50 top panelists and international guests to bring you new ideas and opportunities.
Romania has championed economic growth in the European Union, expanding by 5.9 percent in the second quarter of 2017, making it one of fastest growing countries in the region. The foreign direct investments in Romania reached close to EUR 4.5 billion in 2016, which was an increase of 32 percent year-on-year and the biggest amount from the past eight years. With Romania’s ambition to join the Euro zone and further integrate itself in the Union, we look at ways in which the country could become even more attractive for investors in the years to come.
The Summit will explore different ways in which the private sector and public authorities can further integrate their cooperation to secure the country’s growth story going forward.
Over the course of 3 days, officials, experts, investors, diplomats and companies’ leaders will engage in a constructive dialogue about the outlook of the business environment in Romania. By looking at some of the issues that hinder the accelerated development of the economy, the heads of large companies will make recommendations for improving the overall climate for doing business in Romania. And their voice will be heard directly by policymakers.
