The development of investment projects involves making a decision and the existence of financial resources.

In this context, the cost-benefit analysis is a useful tool for evaluation and analysis of the investment projects, contributing significantly to the decision making regarding the choice of the optimal project. The objective of this article is to highlight the importance of cost-benefit analysis for the projects investment financed by the European Union through the Rural National Development Program 2007-2013, under axis IV LEADER.
