I have visited Romania on orthodox Easter, and it was very deep spiritual.
Besides, I met a very interesting expat coming from Belgium, Mr Pascal Brijnaert. He is a computer engineer, who have worked to the undergrounds from Mexico City and New Delhi. Mr Brijnaert is now 45 and he rules since 15 years a succes business based on woodworking. Mr Brijnaert’s company (Fininvest international, www.fininvest.ro) produces wood toys, which exports in western Europe( Belgium and France, where Mr Pascal has excellent contacts).
Pascal Brijnaert came first in Romania as a market researcher, working for other company, and ended through developing his own business. I do not earn very much from this little business, says Mr Brijnaert, my wish was to put some romanians to work, as I love this country very much. Indeed, he speaks perfectly Romanian, and is converted to orthodoxy.
There are 5 best ways to invest successfully in Romania:
1. Make a good business plan. If you are convinced about its chances of success, the banks will be too!
2. Do not think to be millionaire over night
3. Invest continuously in technology and personnel.
4. Keep yourself in touch with the market permanently.
5.Learn Romanian at high level. Otherwise you will not be accepted very easy.
We have already good plans to expand and extend our activity, respecting all these ways and steps.
