AmCham Romania says it is monitoring initiatives to elaborate a Romania Country Project, as it has advocated during the past years for defining and adopting a multi-generational country model to project Romania’s future economic development.
Also, AmCham is pleased by the recent Government and Presidency ventures in this respect and it believes that such a project needs can be secured by bringing all relevant parties in the process, such as the business community that, along with representatives of the political parties, administration, academia, civil society, diaspora, unions, and even of the cultural and artistic realms, will provide a relevant mix of expertise and diversity in approaching potential growth paths for Romania.
In AmCham’s opinion, the business community has the experience of being part in the public-private dialogue.
The support and interest at the business community level, together with the openness of the authorities are important. However, for a long term impact and successful implementation the methodology is also important.
In AmCham’ s view, the process facilitation involves involving all relevant stakeholders from society, so that each party will be able to contribute to shaping the country project vision and implementation. Experiences of countries that took on a similar path confirm that this is the only way to ensure a representativeness and a multi-sectorial endorsement of Romania’s strategic positioning.
AmCham Romania was set up in 1993 and it now represents over 400 members – US, international and local companies, with total investments worth over USD 20 billion and generating approximately 250,000 jobs.
