Romania can become a major player in the sector of industrial logistics in Europe, against the background of the fundamental changes that the global economy is going through, from the shortening of production and supply chains to the focus on finding secure locations, protected from unwanted events, such as war and climate change, shows an analysis carried out by Frames and Frisomat Romania, sent to AGERPRES on Thursday.
In the next five years, our country has the potential to attract investments of 10 billion euros in the development of logistic and industrial spaces, both from private funds and from public investments, the source says.
According to experts, Romania is in the midst of development opportunities that it must take advantage of to transform the logistics, transport, agriculture and the automotive industry.
At the European level, Romania ranks 4th in terms of investment intentions in the following year, after Portugal, United Kingdom and Lithuania, whether it is about the establishment of new businesses or the expansion of existing ones.
According to the experts from Frisomat, Romania has every chance to become a true regional hub in the logistics field, the most attractive investment areas being the Port of Constanta, Bucharest/Ilfov and the West/North-West region.
Against the background of the positive economic evolution in the first six months of 2022, companies inaugurated over 373,000 square meters of industrial and logistics spaces, with Romania thus hitting the 6 million square meter mark.
In 2021, the total value of real estate investments approached 900 million euros in Romania in 2021, according to Colliers Romania consultants, and industrial and logistics spaces accounted for 29 percent of the total.
