“For the 6th consecutive year, the Belgian business community in Romania organizes the Belgian Week that benefits from the full support and participation of the Embassy of the Kingdom of Belgium in Romania. Business conferences and seminars with the theme of investments in Romanian real estate will blend with informal networking sessions, allowing participants to gain know-how, as well as valuable connections. The week will be accompanied by a Belgian gastronomic flavor to make a remarkable experience for all participants. As mentioned in the most recent Country Report Romania 2018 of the EU Commission, Romania has captured an increasing part of trade related to EU production chains. The Romanian economy continues to benefit from its strong integration in EU value chains. An increasing specialization in regional European value chains has enabled Romania to respond to the shift in global demand to emerging economies. Belgium is an important production partner of Romania in regional EU value chains, and this explain the keen interest of Belgian partners for real estate operations in Romania, be it in logistics, manufacturing or services. I’m convinced the Belgian week 2018 will further enhance the excellent economic relations between our two countries and will identify business opportunities for many participants”, says also E.S. Thomas Baekelandt, Ambassador of Belgium to Romania.
