Timișoara is one of Romania's most dynamic and developed economic centers, the go-to investment destination in Western Romania for more than a decade now. In 2023, Timișoara is also designated the European Capital of Culture, further raising its regional and European profiles as a business and cultural hub. Large foreign direct investments that call the West region home are headquartered in Timișoara and the Greater Timișoara Area and the city continues to see strong interest from both international and local investors.
