We also partnered with Raiffeisen Bank to increase access to financing and strengthen the resilience of small and medium-sized enterprises. With our support, the new business lending will also benefit from reduced interest rates.

Not a weather forecast
Everyone knows that climate change is a big, long-term challenge.

Romania modernises universities to improve education
Education plays a central role in shaping society. Through teaching and learning, we are able to learn new skills and improve peoples day-to-day lives.

In an effort to improve education, two of Romania's leading universities requested the Advisory Hub's support in the construction, extension and renovation of their campus and facilities.
