Hire and Manage your Workforce in Romania

European Union’s Economic Growth Champion in Q1 2021

The Romanian economy is projected to grow by 6% in 2021 and 4.6% in 2022 (OECD), led mainly by investment and pent-up demand. Consumption will increase as the vaccination rollout continues and restrictions on activities are eased; international trade remains strong with imports outpacing exports due to domestic consumption needs being more important than overseas markets’ demands for Romania’s goods. Unemployment rates should decrease gradually thanks to improvements like increased growth, which could lead them back down below their pre-crisis level of 5%. According to provisional data reported by Eurostat, Romania is the champion in the EU, having the highest economic growth in Q1 2021, followed by Cyprus, Hungary and Lithuania. In 2020, Romania was ranking #55 in the World Bank’s Ease of Doing Business index (Sources: OECD, Energy Industry Review, and EC).
