Chapter I Importance of Agriculture in Romanian Economy


1.1 General agricultural context of the Romanian economy

Agriculture represents for Romania a large economic sector with implications in ensuring the national potential development, but also in shaping its own evolving structure models of the national production. The integration in the European Economic space equally determines achieving functional transformation of this sector in the conditions of ensuring a necessary convergence to meet the specific requirements of the European agricultural model.
