Advocacy & CDR

Within the NRCC strategy there is a strong commitment towards advocacy. We actively contribute to ensure a healthy and stable business climate in Romania, involved through our activities in consultation and creation sustainable legislation. The NRCC is also actively involved in efforts on improving social inclusion and cohesion in the Romanian society and stand up against social discrimination.


As the Netherlands is one of the largest foreign investors in Romania, there is also the responsibility of bringing and safeguarding certain values and ethics regarding a healthy business climate.


The working groups are set up on various domains of interest for the business community, in close correlation with the agenda of the ministries or in response to the government’s priorities. NRCC has designated representatives in all 14 working groups.


CDR is a private, apolitical initiative, built as a collaboration between the collective participation of its members, that voluntarily contributes with the necessary resources and expertise to formulate common opinions, on public policies with an impact on the business environment.


NRCC aims to constantly widen and strengthen the support provided to its members. Already involved and active with CDR (Coalition for the Development of Romania), and coordinating its own Task Forces, NRCC seeks to become even more active, vocal and engaged in advocacy and in the CDR initiatives.
