The Banker and fDi Intelligence, in association with Boussias Communications, is pleased to present 'Financing Growth in Romania', a one day conference bringing together senior officials from Government, banking, financial services and business to share their views and insights on the options for reshaping and restoring confidence in Romania's economy.

Achieving economic recovery and sustainable growth are the fundamental drivers of political and financial activity in today's Romania. International commentators including the EU and IMF agree that the country is on the right track and the outlook is positive following the turmoil of recent years and the stringent austerity programme adopted by the Government.

The Romanian economy is forecast to grow by 2% in 2012, in sharp contrast to 2009 when the economy shrank by 7.1% forcing the country into a €20bn loan from the EU, IMF and the World Bank. But success on the road ahead requires a clear government focus on reforming the public financings as well as commitment to deliver on the privatisation and infrastructure agendas and facilitate domestic and international investment into this growing economy.
