Location: Romania

Partners: AHK Romania, CCI Munich, Frankfurt, Duisburg, Pfalz


From November 20th to 23rd in 2023, AHK Romania, in cooperation with BME and with the support of the Chambers of Commerce and Industry in Munich, Frankfurt, Duisburg and Pfalz, will conduct a Sourcing Tour in Romania on behalf of the German Federal Ministry of Economy and Climate Protection.


With its well-qualified workforce, proximity to other European markets and good framework conditions, Romania is becoming an increasingly attractive nearshoring location for German companies, not only for manufacturing but also for research and development.


The Sourcing Event offers a combination of different modules (information workshop in Germany, briefing in Romania, networking event, individual business meetings and company visits) and is intended to expose the potential of the Romanian market and facilitate initial qualified contacts between German buyers and Romanian suppliers.


At the heart of the trip, besides the company visits, are individual B2B meetings with pre-identified potential suppliers from Romania. The interlocutors are carefully selected on the basis of the goals and needs of the individual German buyers.
