In addition, we have clear signs that many Romanian companies will start an expansion process in various countries in Europe, following the model of one of the largest members of the association.
Locally, we are convinced that the association will continue to grow – our current and future members are the ones around which we build our strategies. It is obvious that the market has matured, the competition has strengthened all aspects of the business, and the relationship with authority – either directly, at the level of NGO, or at a wider, legislative and executive level – will tend this year towards normalization.
Our association will continue to be an active pole of action and influence and we will try to permanently change the sentiment in the industry, from an almost defensive one to a leadership one, characteristic of the new global business environment .
We will always support through dialogue a modern approach to the field, which must evolve naturally at the same pace as technology and all the requirements of the society in which we live. We are campaigning for a transparent, balanced legislative framework, which offers a fair competitive evolution and at the same time does not create possible situations of double standard or abuses.”, said Mr. Dan Ghita, Executive President with ROMBET.
