    Tourism is, for many countries, the main economic driver and a priority domain for any future sustainable development strategies. Romania, despite being endowed with many natural and cultural sites, ranks behind most of the European countries in terms of tourism competitiveness due to the improper marketing, as well as the incapacity to have a correct and proper vision and to update existing products and tourist services. The paper aims at analysing the current features of the tourism sector in Romania, focusing on the most recent trends of the sector as well as inbound tourism, receipts and expenditure. Great attention was paid to the key drivers for the tourism market, analysing the country’s position in international ranking regarding the travel and tourism competitiveness.
