Possibly a new steel mill in southern Romania, Vosganian says

A new steel mill will possibly be constructed in southern Romania, the minister of Economy, Varujan Vosganian announced in an interview with HotNews. According to the official, this will be a greenfield investment made by a company with Indian capital and Italian management. The investment will amount to EUR 100-200 M, he added. “We had the first talks. The investment will be made in southern Romania, somewhere near the Danube. I cannot say more at this moment,” Vosganian stated. He added that the talks with the investor were conducted during meetings he recently had with representatives of the business environment. “I had talks with this investor during the dialogue I had with companies.

I have much confidence in greenfield investments, because they are contaminated neither by the supplementary costs sustained by state companies, nor by the costs with the work force,” the minister explained.The minister of Economy, Varujan Vosganian participates in the ‘Anual Investment Meeting – AIM 2013,’ on April 29 – May 2 in Dubai/ United Arab Emirates, at the invitation of his counterpart from the UAE.
