The American Chamber of Commerce in Romania (AmCham Romania) emphasizes the need for a coherent, long-term investment plan, built on sustainable basis and visionary policies, in order to boost Romania’s economic growth potential, without affecting the macroeconomic balance.
According to the report Investment –the Column for Romania’s Sustainable Economic Growth, elaborated by experts within AmCham Romania’s community, in order to transfer welfare to the citizens’ level, public and private investments are needed, through an accelerated absorption of EU funds, FDI inflows, capital market development, by stimulating capital supply and demand.
The report outlines the necessary conditions for investments with long-term impact, in the context of the accelerated global competition for capital, and identifies the sectors with high potential for investments that Romania should set as priorities for development.
Concerning the policies designed to encourage investment, the AmCham Romania report emphasis the need for such policies to pay particular attention to increasing the chances that capital supply will meet capital demand in an efficient manner, which could include improving the incentives for a more direct, yet sustainable risk-taking, both for those who have savings or capital to invest.
With this report that proposes a conceptual framework for addressing investments, AmCham Romania aims to bring the topic into the public debate on economic issues, as without a coherent investment process there can be no sustainable economic growth for Romania and Romanians.
