Thursday, 22 November 2018

Bucharest Stock Exchange (BVB) and the Ministry for Business Environment, Commerce and Entrepreneurship have signed a cooperation partnership for promoting legislative initiatives to develop the business environment in Romania, as well as seminars dedicated to diversifying funding sources and facilitating companies’ access to finance.

„The private environment in Romania has reached a degree of maturity that allows the capital market to be increasingly taken into account/consideration as a financing solution. Stock listings or bond issues provide the premises for an acceleration in business – either production, investments or exports”, said Stefan-Radu Oprea, Minister for the Business, Commerce and Entrepreneurship Environment.

„The stock exchange seeks to support entrepreneurs who have a lack of equity and an excedent of ideas to develop their businesses. The role of this partnership is to be closer to entrepreneurs and to connect companies seeking financing with the investors who have the capital they so much need to develop”, BVB CEO, Adrian Tanase stated.

The Ministry for Business Environment, Commerce and Entrepreneurship and the Bucharest Stock Exchange will organize next year a series of eight workshops in the eight agencies for SMEs, Investment Involvement and Export Promotion within the Ministry. The events will take place in Brasov, Bucharest, Cluj-Napoca, Constanta, Craiova, Iasi, Ploiesti, Targu Mures and Timisoara. Within workshops, the BVB will present to business representatives the opportunities that the capital market offers both to the companies that want to develop and to the individual investors who want to use the stock exchange mechanisms.
