In the highly dynamic and interconnected world of global business with paradigms of economic power being drawn and redrawn relentlessly, Romania has succeeded in maintaining its position as the leading foreign direct investment recipient in the SEE, proving that an unremitting desire to seek performance, improvements and productivity gains, doubled by a sound economic policy and a safe environment is still the script for success and cost-effectiveness, as InvestRomania notes.
As part of the European Union, Romania stands for an incredible market opportunity in terms of size (the 9th in EU28) and population (the 7th in EU28), offering investors a high market potential as the second largest country in Central and Eastern Europe and the largest in SEE. Following the country’s EU accession in 2007, investors here find themselves within a single market of 500 million consumers, as one of the largest in the world, providing enormous advantages for companies seeking new markets for development and growth. Moreover, EU membership makes it also eligible for over EUR 40 bill in EU grant funding. Besides its belonging to the great European family, Romania enjoys yet another significant international affiliation- NATO membership – standing as a pillar of strength in maintaining stability and security in the region.
