An exclusive meeting from
Automotive Leaders
Power Breakfast

June 29, 2011

Grand Hotel Continental
Bucharest, Romania



The Romanian car parts and vehicles sector accounts for just over 11 per cent of all the nation’s exports in 2010, and half of the exports are sourced from one industry – machinery. Besides the low opperational costs, Romania’s proximity to the West backed up by the political stability of its EU member status allows manufacturers to eventually produce the full portfolio of components for vehicles.

The Diplomat-Bucharest, is organizing on June 29 a Power Breakfast on Automotive, where decision-making representatives of the most important car parts producers will be invited to network, create business opportunities and learn about the country’s potential in the industry.

Main discussion topics that will be adressed:

  • What is the impact that transport infrastructure or rather lack of it has on the automotive sector?
  • Is the local labor force a plus for automotive industry investors? What is the role of the new Labor Code in terms of labor force mobility?
  • Has Romania lost its advantage on reduced production costs compared to Western countries?
  • What are the trends in the aftermarket: multi-branded services vs. dealer’s service?
  • What are the advantages offered by the European legislative framework to automotive producers and independent distributors?
  • Location. Location. Location. What are the trends in locating and developing car parts factories?
  • What are the problems faced by suppliers of automotive parts on the local market?
  • How will the automotive industry develop in Romania in the following years?

The findings at the Automotive Leaders Powerbreakfast 2011 will be published in a worldwide special report in The Diplomat Bucharest and on
