The UK currently has over 4,000 registered companies active in Romania, and is currently the country’s tenth highest foreign investor with total investment worth around £4 billion.
Since Romania joined the EU – along with Bulgaria – as part of the 2007 enlargement of the European Union, bilateral trade has grown consistently and reached a record value of £2.6 billion in 2011, with £1.1 billion worth of exports to Romania and £1.5 billion worth of imports.
