Market insight Romania

The global economic and financial crisis was an opportunity for Romania to correct some of its macroeconomic imbalances. Current Account deficit adjusted significantly to 4% of Gross domestic product in 2009 from more than 13% in 2007, short term private external debt came under control, labour productivity improved in manufacturing while real wages slowed down. At the same time, Romania embarked on an ambitious fiscal consolidation process within a stand-by arrangement with the IMF and EU. The reforms of the public wage and pension systems, the passage of fiscal responsibility law and the reform of the labour market will put Romania on a strong and healthy growth trajectory in the next years.
