Economic Openness in Romania: the opportunities, challenges and risks

International trade is an essential ingredient to Romania’s prosperity. And trade can only flourish when markets are open, trust is shared, and opportunities for economic mobility are available to workers.

The Legatum Institute are delighted to announce that we will be visiting Bucharest on 10 October to showcase our Global Index of Economic Openness (GIEO) and, in particular, the in-depth case study that we have produced on Romania.

Ahead of the presidential elections in November, this will be a timely opportunity for the international and domestic business community to understand how economic openness is being realised across the country and to assess what government and institutional engagement is required to prevent Romania from being held back.

The program will feature a short overview presentation from our Director of Policy, Dr Stephen Brien, and a panel discussion with a diverse group of stakeholders. Attendees of the event will be given an opportunity to interact with the speakers as part of the formal session.
