Go to International

The impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) is having a significant impact on every aspect of our lives in Romania and other countries across the world. Declared as a pandemic by the World Health Organisation in March 2020, everyone’s primary concern is to minimise the spread of the virus, to mitigate its effects and to protect those most vulnerable in society.

Businesses and organisations have a role to play and a responsibility to their own people. They also confront a wide range of practical, commercial and legal challenges associated with the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19).
