Abstract: The economic growth determinants in a national economy or sector have been the subject of many debates among experts, starting from the identification of the indicators considered to be the economic growth drivers, to the correlations between them and to the interpretations of results. This approach aims to identify the extensive and intensive indicators with direct influence upon economic growth in the Romanian agro-food sector and to test the influence of factors upon the effect indicators by constructing an econometric model. Referring to the agri-food sector, the following were identified as indicators/influence factors of economic growth: gross value added, crop and livestock production value, livestock herds, agricultural production in terms of cereal units, employed population, consumption of main products, labor productivity, prices. The analysis of the data series of the indicators mentioned above and the correlations between them reveal their involutions in terms of efficiency and productivity, being still far from ensuring the sustainable economic growth in the agri-food sector.
