No 7814, 104th Seminar, September 5-8, 2007, Budapest, Hungary from European Association of Agricultural Economists

Abstract: In Romania's farming sector are currently working 3.6 million people, representing 32.1% of the total country's labour force. Yet, they contribute by only 8.5% to total GDP (2005). Besides the sectoral restructuring efforts, there are at present social problems that have to be solved up, namely the diminution of the huge agricultural labour force and the improvement of life quality in the rural areas. The importance of completing the tasks that remained uncompleted during the transition period, namely the privatization of land still in state ownership, competitiveness improvement, development of a market-compatible institutional framework became a pressing need at present, in spite of the many difficulties.
