Romania: Government to invest €100 million to streamline wholesale agri market

Through its trade house Unirea, Romania’s government has pledged to invest up to €100 million for the development of the nation's agri-business infrastructure. The aim is helping small farms sell their output, substitute 30%-40% of the food currently imported and eventually increase the agriculture share in the country’s GDP.

The main projects envisaged by the government for the Unirea trade house are: setting up ten collection centres for fruits and vegetables (increasing the share if local fruits and vegetables on the local market by 15%-20%), a fish trade exchange (to market 15%-20% of the fish captured in the Danube Delta), two collection platforms for grain with a capacity of 200,000-300,000 tons located close to Danube and the development of existing or new agri production clusters where the primary goods are processed for value adding.
