Andrei Dudoiu: What lies ahead for businesses in Romania in 2023?

Andrei Dudoiu: What lies ahead for businesses in Romania in 2023?

The first content event organized by Romania Insider and La French Tech brings 12 speakers on stage to discuss the challenges and opportunities for companies doing business in Romania. 

War at the border, energy crisis, high inflation, volatile markets, and a potential recession in developed economies paint a complicated year ahead for businesses in Romania.

On the bright side, Romania benefits from unprecedented amounts of EU funds and recovery funds and has the opportunity to turn into a European energy powerhouse thanks to large investment projects in the gas and renewable energy sectors.

Romania in 2023: Weathering the Global Storm, an event organized by Romania Insider and La French Tech at the French Institute in Bucharest on November 23 (starting at 18:00), will bring on stage government officials, macroeconomists, tax and finance experts, investors, tech leaders, Venture Capitalists (VCs) investing in local startups, and corporate leaders for an open debate on the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead for companies doing business in Romania.

In two moderated panels, we will try to find out from our speakers’ relevant information that business leaders should consider when preparing their strategies for 2023. 

The first panel will focus on macro perspectives, tax and regulation changes, financial markets, and foreign investments, while the second panel will cover business perspectives in some key sectors (energy, retail, insurance, tech, and startups).
