Dutch investors say they are in Romania for the long run and came here in the attracted among other things by competitive advantages such as an educated workforce and low labor costs. Now, the crisis is bringing an older issue for the local economy to the fore. Productivity continues to be below the European average and solutions need to be found. Some of
the recommendations made during last year’s edition discussions include investments in innovation, logistics and relevant education and training programs.
There are many sectors of great interest, but the Netherlands is focussing for the moment on: logistics& infrastructure, water, environment and energy.
As for future trends, Dutch companies are still finding business opportunities in industry, logistics, infrastructure and energy and taking a particular interest in the local healthcare sector. However, a lot still depends on political will and commitment from the Romanian side.
Business Review creates for the third year the set-up for debate and constructive discussions for Dutch investors, company representatives, state authority and officials.
