Rural Employment In The Context Of Romanian Regional Development
This paper presents the main characteristics of the rural labour market, both at national level and at the level of the eight development regions of Romania, focusing especially on the qualitative aspects of employment. The objectives of our paper are to emphasize the fact that the labour resource in the Romanian rural area is and has to acknowledge itself as a key resource of sustainable development, under the circumstances in which in Romania 45.1% of the population lives in the rural area. Moreover, the paper underlines the implications of the regions’ degree of ruralisation on employment and economic development. The results of the statistical-economic analysis, which was carried out based on the data at national level as well as the level of the development regions in Romania, show that rural labour market is characterized by: employment predominantly in agricultural activities, high share of self- employed and contributing family worker, low level of education, the basic occupation - farmers and skilled workers in agriculture, low productivity, etc. We consider that in order to achieve rural regional development in Romania it is necessary to increase the quality of employment in the rural area.
