High Value Agri-Food Products In Romania’S Trade Pattern
AbstractThe present study focuses on the Romania’s high-value agriculture trade pattern and changes subsequent to the EU accession impact, analyzing the dynamics and ranks of the production volumes and values of the trade flows. The main results provide assessments of the Romania’s high-value agricultural products competitive potential expressed on foreign markets. Among such commodities, the following are particularly significant: livestock, dairy products, horticulture products including fruit and vegetables, berries and spices, mushrooms, wine. The high-value agrifood products are provided from high-natural value zones and are typically produced on small-size farms. Consequently, their production and marketing are important, both as a catalyst to maintain and develop rural communities and as a source of multiple sustainable benefits incumbent on local economies and rural socio-economic development. In this context, the message of the present scientific endeavor addresses the design of a strategy of small-scale farmers’ income increase to help them diversify from low-value unstable food into higher-value sustainable supplies.
