Executive summary

Romanian travel and tourism sector recorded slow growth due to weak and uncertain economic conditions in 2009–2010. However, on account of increased tourist volumes, the industry recovered and has shown signs of improvement. Over the forecast period, the sector is expected to register positive growth as its economy recovers. The country is expected to benefit from its accession to the European Union (EU) in 2007, as this will provide more exposure to foreign investment, lower air fares and facilitate travel for tourists from other European countries.

The campaign was based on a market study carried out in Romania and its eight most important tourism source markets: Germany, the UK, Italy, Russia, Austria, the US, France and Hungary. The study revealed six products of tourist interest: cultural circuits, nature, rural tourism, city breaks such as Bucharest and Braşov, adventure tourism, and wellness and spa tourism.
