Business Review announces the third edition of the Foreign Investors Forum, the most complex B2B event dedicated to Romania’s competitiveness, which will take place on November 1-3 at the Sheraton Bucharest Hotel. Over the 3 days, officials, experts, investors and leaders will jointly analyse Romania’s outlook as an attractive environment for foreign investors as well as propose courses of action to achieve further economic development for companies already doing business here.
Romania’s business scene improved on rank of 37th worldwide on the aggregate ease of doing business index, according to the World Bank’s Doing Business Report 2015-2016. The Romanian FDI stock has also increased constantly during the last 16 years, from EUR 9.7 billion to EUR 63 billion at the end of 2015, with the highest shares directed towards sectors such as manufacturing, energy, financial services and IT.
This year’s summit will bring together the main foreign business communities for a series of conferences, dedicated workshops and key note speeches on Romania’s economic outlook in the next years. With a registered growth 3.8 percent in 2015 and a hike of 6 percent in the second quarter of 2016 compared to the same period last year, forecasts on Romania’s future as an attractive investment destination are becoming increasingly present.
