From the first semester of 2014 to the same period in 2015, the total estimated value of transactions in Romania has gone from 0,6 to 2,1 billion USD, a recent Ernst&Young press release reveals.

A closer look at the current situation also reveals that the countries with the greatest investments in Romania were the US, Holland, Cyprus,Great Britain, Italy and the Czech Republic. It is quite obvious that Romania is a very attractive market in the CSE region. This is evident in its economy and is also due to its valuable geostrategic position, that has made it priceless to many other nations over time.

Ernst&Young's Transaction Assistance Department Leader in Romania, Florin Vasilica, declared: “ In the future, we expect that the energy sector will attract important investors through the potential of its new energy sources. We're also expecting a significant consolidation of the financial sector as well as medical services, which are entering a second investment wave.” This is encouraging news and the consequences of this reality can only help the country's economic future. The CSE region, which includes Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Croatia, Greece, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, and, Turkey has reportedly seen a 2,9 percent increase in its mergers and acquisitions. American investors have been the most active in the region, adding 36 transactions to their portfolio. They were followed by Great Britain which had 29 transactions, Germany with its 26 and Austria which had 11.Apparently most of the interest went towards the IT sector, while, value wise, the biggest transactions took place in the banking and finance sectors.
