27-28 September 2018, Constanta, Romania

Organisers: Aspen Institute Romania and Constanta City Hall

Unlocking Constanta’s full potential: Investing in infrastructure and logistics. Due to its geographical location, the Port of Constanta can become a Gateway into the EU for goods originating in Asia and the Middle East, with the destination of Central and Eastern Europe. In addition to reducing the distance of shipping routes by approximately 2,400 nautical miles (Port of Shipment – Constanta instead of Shipping Port – Northwest Europe), the distance travelled by road transport will be diminished as Romania is closer to the countries in Central and Eastern Europe with about 650 kilometres. In order to achieve this objective, the Port of Constanta should ensure rapid transit of goods to the EU market (including Romania) as well as “Near-Shoring” processing capabilities.Date: September 28, 2018
