Welcome to the Agribusiness Conference

A conference on the agribusiness potential of Romania

Greenway Invest is pleased to present the first agri-business conference ever organized in the history of Romania. This event is designed for the international investor and all those interested to invest and work in agribusiness in Romania. You can get a detailed programme here:

Since joining the EU in 2007, Romania has accelerated its economic progress and is in a superb geographical location to link Europe to the growing markets in the Middle East and Asia, Western Europe or worldwide.

It would be presumptuous to present Romania as the EU Gateway to the east but it connects the greater EU to the Black Sea by the means of the Danube and other river routes to well organised export facilities in the main ports like Constanza. This provides direct access to the Turkish, Ukrainian & Russian markets and access to the wider world via the Mediterranean.

Romanian agriculture presents a wide and varied potential. Across the range of markets supervised by Brussels, we have significant activity* in cereals, fruit & vegetables, milk, pigs and poultry enterprises. Other products and services are also provided such as natural fibres, crops for oil production etc.

And yet the current income* levels seen in farming are well behind most other EU countries

All the new member states* lag behind the more traditonal EU Members and although farm sizes in Romania exceed those of most other member states, income levels are low and need a boost from new investment.

Romania boasts of 9.3 M Has of arable land with good potential for large-scale farming suitable to apply modern techniques and to use high horse power tractors and large agri equipments (giving economies of scale)

*All statistics taken from official EU Annual Reports

At the conference, Romania is going to be revealed from the many different angles of its agricultural potential with eminent Romanian & International speakers. The key-note section will be presented by ex-Minister of Agriculture, Dr Valeriu Tabara and University professor Dr Mihai Berca.

We will also look at the financial and legal structures needed to succeed in business in Romania from professional institutions, with papers from Mr Ciprian Glodeanu of Wolftheis and Mr Constantin Ghinita of PCS, Romania.

Individual agricultural sectors will be presented by specialist managers, agri-traders and investors. You will be able to listen and question business-men who are already active in this type of enterprise and happy to share their experience with us.

A field trip to one or two farms and a local food processor is included to those interested in the practical details.

Our aim is to link Romanian agri players and specialists to international parties interested to invest and work in Romanian agribusiness.

The Conference will be chaired by Mr Alastair Dickie, a respected commentator with 35-years commercial experience in agricultural trading and analysis of the markets around the world. View a short presentation of his activities HERE:
