The German Business Club Northern-Transylvania

The German Business Club Northern-Transylvania (DWNT) in Cluj-Napoca (DWNT) is a forum for companies from Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Romania, which are wishing to invest in Romania and especially here in the region of Northern-Transylvania. The members of DWNT will be informed in the monthly meetings on topics ranging from business, finance, tax and legal issues in order for them to operate successfully on the Romanian market. The members of the DWNT will also take part in the big community of all other Business Clubs, chambers of commerce and authorities in Romania.

Therefore, the nearly 60 members of DWNT are constantly informed about different subjects in areas such as economy, finance, taxes and law, so that the companies are able to make the right decisions and to act accordingly on the Romanian market on the basis of these information. The club is also a contact point for companies which would like to invest in Romania, especially in the area of Northern Transylvania. Important assistance can thus be given through initial contacts and assessments of the situation.

The close collaboration of the German Economic Club Northern-Transylvania with other economic clubs from Romania, the German-Romanian Chamber of Commerce in Bucharest, their diplomatic representatives and educational and cultural institutions offers a huge network of business contacts of all kinds.
