Romania at ExpoReal 2018

Date: 08.10-10.10.2018 

The Romanian pavilion at the International Trade Fair EXPO REAL is organised for the 7th time in a row by the German-Romanian Chamber of Commerce (AHK Romania). 

Conference: Romania - market dynamics and opportunities - 17:00 - 17:45 October 08th


Fastest growing EU country, attractive yields, lots of chances. Meet us @A1.234!

With 6,9% GDP growth, Romania was the fastest growing country in the EU, sustained mostly by the private consumption (retail sales Q1 2018 y-o-y 7,4%), but also backed up by exports (industrial production Q1 2018 y-o-y 7,4%). Even with a slowdown of the GDP growth (5%) Romania is expected to hold the top position also in 2018. Therefore, the outlook for office, retail and industrial spaces remains positive, with first positive signs also for the hotel market.

Terms and conditions on the investment market are getting closer to what investors can expect in the core CEE markets, with a total volume for 2018 estimated to break the € 1 billion mark.

Attractive yields (ranging from 7% in the retail sector to 8,5% for industrial spaces) compared to the neighboring countries, show good macro performances and available funding alternatives speak for Romania.

Companies setting up or expanding offices/ production facilities outside Bucharest and the increasing internal migration have led to a growth of the secondary cities like Iasi, Timisoara or Cluj-Napoca. Such patterns are expected to also boost other segments (like retail or hotel sector).
