IMPLICATIONS OF THE RURAL-URBAN MIGRATION ON REGIONAL EMPLOYMENT AND DEVELOPMENT TRENDS IN ROMANIA Abstract:Traditionally the rural areas have been less developed than urban areas, while the interaction reflected rather a complementary relationship. The distinction between compact urban settlements and their rural hinterlands has diminished over time in many developed countries, due to technological, economic and institutional factors. In Romania, the high share of rural population and the development gap between the urban and rural areas have shaped the development path of the country. The paper focuses on the main urban-rural interactions in Romania in terms of demographic and employment trends. The analysis reveals that the migration has contributed to the divergent inter-regional development. Classification-JEL: J11, J61, O18
