What are the main aspects that differentiate CTP Romania from other competitors in the market and position it as a reliable partner for logistics and production companies?

CTP Romania differentiates itself from other competitors in the market by focusing on long-term partnerships and involvement in community development. In addition to building and maintaining buildings, CTP is actively engaged in community development through various community management initiatives. These include actions such as forest greening, blood donations, first aid and English courses, all offered free of charge to members of the communities managed by CTP. We aim to be a good neighbor in every location where we operate. CTP promotes socially responsible behavior in all the countries in which it operates, supporting a wide range of organisations, mainly focused on child and adolescent development (e.g. vocational skills training, scholarships and equipment support), social welfare and development of local infrastructure.
Another differentiator is the significant investment in green energy. With 28 MWp already installed in Bucharest, Pitesti, Timișoara and Sibiu, CTP demonstrates a strong commitment to sustainability and reducing environmental impact.

Last but not least, CTP stands out for its large presence on the Romanian market, in most regional cities in the country, from Bucharest to Craiova, Timișoara, Arad, Oradea, Sibiu and Brasov. Its expanding portfolio of 2.9 million square meters, plus a land bank of 3.5 million square meters, offers considerable development capacity tailored to market demands.

What are the facilities that contribute to a successful CTP community?

CTP's logistics parks offer customers a number of advantages and facilities that help them achieve their ESG goals. For example, the implementation of photovoltaic panels and the use of renewable energy contribute to reducing the impact on the environment and promoting more environmentally sustainable production. In addition, some parks benefit from industrial park status, which gives manufacturers exemptions from property tax.

In addition, the quality of work life is enhanced by the existence of generous green spaces, comfortable office spaces and a high percentage of natural light in the warehouses. These facilities help create a pleasant and productive work environment for employees.

CTP offers customized facilities for manufacturers, such as production halls adapted to their specific needs, equipped with intelligent access control systems, fire protection systems and charging stations for electric cars.

To support CTP's efforts to integrate its parks into the communities in which it operates, CTP has introduced the Clubhaus mixed-use development concept at certain park locations, including Bucharest. As part of its parks strategy, CTP develops common spaces that serve tenants' employees and local communities. The Clubhouse in CTPark Bucharest West offers space for meetings, educational activities, social gatherings, medical services, a cafe, convenience store and canteen, as well as outdoor facilities and can be used free of charge by the park community.

 In conclusion, what are Romania's prospects for attracting new investors in the next period and what are the factors influencing this trend?

Romania's prospects for attracting new investors in the coming period are promising, with the potential to see an increase in investment from Asia. Romania, the second largest market in the CEE region, stands out as the main destination, offering a multitude of opportunities and advantages for companies that aim to explore this European market. With lower costs, skilled human capital and a solid infrastructure, Romania offers attractive options for companies looking to expand their operations here.

The need to mitigate geopolitical and macroeconomic risks is driving the trend toward nearshoring, where supply chains are relocated to be closer to end customers. CEE is already very well rated as a "Made in Europe" nearshoring hub, with Romania at the top. There are regions such as Brașov and Sibiu where German is spoken, which facilitates communication and collaboration between investors and local workers. Romania also enjoys a high percentage of graduates in STEM fields (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics), which can attract investors interested in the specialized workforce.

With its strategic location, skilled workforce, robust infrastructure and business-friendly environment, Romania offers a compelling proposition to Asian companies looking to expand their operations and tap into the booming market in the region.
