Short description

There are two events dedicated to the European Competition Day annually organized by the Members States that hold the Presidency of the European Union. For the first time in Romania, we aim to celebrate a Romanian edition of the European Day of Competition and Competitiveness.


This two-days event is organised with the kind support of H.H. Prince Radu Hohenzollern de Veringen,

Special Representative of the Romanian Government for Integration, Co-operation and Sustainable Development.


We designed the event as a combination of, on the one hand, specialised debates, information and training thematic workshops, and on the other hand, of public activities devoted to promote a competition culture in Romania and the whole region advocate for a fair and transparent competition within the new Member and Candidate States: the Competition Fair and the Essay Student Contest on Competitiveness of Romanian products and services.
