Game dev industry in Romania continues to develop and the growth trends, both local and global, are encouraging. RGDA acts continuously to stimulate investments in the industry and in order to develop local entrepreneurship in gaming; in the next years, we expect significant increases in the area of independent developers, and, as consequence, more promising products developed in Romania. That is why RGDA developed, during the last period of time, a constant and transparent dialog with the central authorities in order to present the opportunities and challenges of the industry in Romania. A sustainable development and a really significant growth can be achieved benefiting by support from the state, same as it happens in other countries where this sector is well developed
