Foreign Investors Summit 2022
Foreign Investors Summit | 9th edition
October 26-27 | The Marmorosch Bucharest, Autograph Collection
ABOUT

Despite a harsh couple of years for global economies, Foreign Direct Investments in Romania are bouncing back from the low mark of 2020, the first pandemic year. After a healthy recovery in 2021, when FDIs more than doubled to EUR 7.2 billion from only EUR 3 billion in 2020, the first half of 2022 marks yet another growth. Thus, FDIs reached EUR 4.37 billion in the first six months of the current year compared with EUR 3.605 billion in the same period of last year, a 21% increase.

The growing FDIs are a solid proof that Romania still is an opportunity for foreign investors. Retail and commerce, technology and communications, energy, real estate and development or agriculture sectors are the main focus of investors. But foreign investments are not only about business in this new world we all live in. Business goes hand in hand with cultural, social, environmental or diplomatic development and is a great path in strengthening ties between countries and its peoples.

At the 9th edition of Business Review’s Foreign Investors Summit we will talk about and celebrate the countries that are home of the most foreign investors in Romania, investors we can proudly call friends. We feel that we have to offer investors of different nationalities an opportunity to openly debate and talk about the relationship of Romania and their country along with their highlights and difficulties.

The panels at FIS 2022 are dedicated to countries with the biggest and most active investors in Romania, from Italy and Germany to Israel and USA. In each panel, presented by the Ambassadors in Romania, investors from different industries will be able to present their specific priorities and challenges of doing business in Romania and talk about the many things that bring us together as people and business leaders of different nationalities. For most of these countries, their business relationship and friendship with our country are centuries old, traditional even, and today we have to strengthen them further.

Join us on October 26-27 at The Marmorosch Bucharest, Autograph Collection (Doamnei St. 2, Bucharest), in the exquisite Vienna Ballroom, for the 9th edition of the Foreign Investors Summit, Business Review's landmark event dedicated to foreign direct investments, and take part, together with leading foreign investors, diplomats, consultants, legal advisors, and public officials, to one of the biggest and most prestigious events of its kind in Romania and the only two-day Summit where those who invest in our country take the center stage!
