The Romanian-German Chamber of Commerce and Industry (AHK Romania) presents the actual figures related to trade between Romania and Germany.
According to the data published by the National Institute of Statistics, Germany remains, in 2015, Romania’s number 1 trading partner. Imports from Germany amounted to EUR 12.5 billion, with 11.3% more than in 2014, whereas exports amounted to EUR 10.8 billion, with 6.8% more as opposed to the previous year. Thus, trades between the two countries amounted to EUR 23.3 billion (+9.3%). The most important groups of products traded between Romania and Germany are cars and appliances, transport means and materials, and base metals. Last year, Romania’s trades amounted to EUR 117.5 billion, with 1.9% more as opposed to 2014. For 2016, AHK Romania also estimates a positive development both of the Romanian-German economic relations, and of German investments in Romania. The Romanian-German Chamber of Commerce and Industry (AHK Romania), as official representative of the German economy in Romania, contributes to the improvement of the business and investment conditions in Romania. One of our key concerns remains the development of a dual vocational education system, with a view to ensuring qualified personnel in Romania.
