Key Industry Trends
Minister Optimistic about Infrastructure Upgrades: Romania's ports are one of the two sectors to be developed in partnership with China, according to Romania's Transport Minister Ramona Manescu, with railways being the other one. The minister, who was appointed in August 2013, also said the rehabilitation of the country's ports along the Danube should be completed during her term.
Risks to Outlook
The potential for growth at the country's ports stems from BMI's positive outlook on the Romanian economy. Container throughput will be driven by the country's consumers, with consumer demand in Romania forecast to strengthen. The country's real GDP is estimated to increase by 2.8% in 2014.
Upside risks to our short- and medium-term forecasts stem from expansion projects; potential foreign investment and interest; and improving domestic demand in the euro area, in particular in Germany, which will prove supportive of sustained export growth over the coming quarters.
