With this issue of Business Review we’re excited to introduce our new layout, bringing more of the best of BR into an expanded format. The redesign reflects our focus on the community, captured in the editorial coverage and series of events targeting the country communities of foreign investors.
While going through these pages, you will notice our updated News pages, which now accommodate several smaller sections covering new topics of interest such as EU funding and regional developments, all designed to make our news coverage more visible and easier to navigate. The redesigned In Touch section is meant to serve as a platform for sharing opinions on the top issues of the moment, and showcase some of what BR has lined up for the week ahead. In the same community-oriented spirit, we’ve expanded our City section to include more of the events happening around town, and as well as the weekly version you can read daily online updates on Bucharest life and events in the expanded City section on the www.business-review.ro site. Last year we started the revamping of our editorial coverage with new sections – Money, Links, Power, Talent – reflecting some of the most dynamic sectors in today’s local economy, and we are now laying them out in a new format. Credit for our new look goes to Alexandru Oriean of Business Printing Solutions.
To get the ball rolling, in this issue we’re focusing on 2009’s M&A activity. Even though the cash value of deals is lower than in recent years, a lot is still going on, and we wanted to see which sectors have attracted investors’ interest, where the spotlight will be, and how Romania compares with countries in the region.
