Romania Freight Transport and Shipping Report Q2 2018
Booming economic growth in Romania will ensure trade and freight growth opportunities in the short to medium term.However, the economy is starting to show signs of overheating which will not bode well for consumer spending. We expect growthto cool substantially in 2018 as fiscal and monetary policies are forced to tighten. That said, some of the downward pressure on thedomestic currency will begin to abate in the second half of 2018 which will bode well for imports. Investments in the rail, road andinland waterways will continue to lead to an uptick in the freight and shipping sector. However, the Romanian government's lack ofcapacity to handle large infrastructure projects might pose a risk to freight growth in the long term.
