„EU Office BCR” – a concept implemented within Banca Comerciala Romana – ensures the complex and full informing of the bank’s customers with respect to the implications of Romania’s joining the European structures and will offer both consulting services and a wide range of products destined to investment projects finance/co-finance, in order to improve the accessibility of European funds for the bank’s partners“, stated Dan Bunea, BCR’s Executive Vice-President.
On this occasion, BCR organised a regional conference with the topic – „BCR –Your partner for successful European projects“, attended by BCR and Erste Bank representatives, as well as by local public authorities and businessmen from the 6 counties from the Centre Development Area (Alba, Sibiu, Brasov, Covasna, Harghita and Mures).
The conference proved itself an efficient occasion for highlighting the advantages offered by the „EU Office BCR” as a competent source of information for the SMEs and Local/Central Public Authorities interested in using structural funding. Furthermore, there were stressed out the advantages of having BCR as partner within the projects financed from European funds, from the co-financing perspective as well.
„All these actions will result in transforming the challenges arisen from the European Union integration process into business opportunities, reasserting BCR’s status of being a strategic partner to its customers, strongly involved into their development“, BCR’s Vice-President mentioned.
