The paper supposes a systematic research and few pragmatic guidelines in addressing the competitive environment (national and European) in which are operating Romanian companies, because their activity is heavily influenced by the business environment and determined by the factors of it. The business environment is characterized by a special dynamic, due to changes that occur within it, especially under the impact of scientific and technical revolution that has brought to the fore the knowledge as essential element of achieving a high competitiveness. We tried to argue the need for a strategic analysis of business environment in the context of the knowledge-based economy, we made an analysis of current status of the Romanian business environment compared to the other European Union member states following several criteria established at the beginning of the analysis, and finally. We have outlined several measures that should be implemented to contribute to the stability and to improving the Romanian business environment in the actual conditions. At the end of the paper we also realized a short analisys of the Romaniana economy position in the international rankings.
