Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/08/2014 -- Romania's main port of Constantza is forecast to see steady growth both in terms of both total tonnage and container throughput in 2014 in line with the country's continued economic recovery and eurozone's projected return to growth.

Robust exports and recovering private consumption will support freight volumes at the country's ports.

Over the medium term, we project further growth at the port of Constantza and the recovery of its pre-downturn total throughput volumes, while container throughput is projected to remain below 2007-2008 level.

Headline Industry Data

- 2014 port of Constantza container throughput forecast to grow 3%, over the medium term we project a 23% increase.
- 2014 total trade growth forecast at 4.75%.
