In this paper, we have investigated the dependence of net export based on GDP and the consumer demand in Romania during 2001-2011. After determining the regression equation, the main conclusion is that in Romania is an excessive dependence of net exports from the level of consumption. The fact is easily explained in terms of negative trade balance, the Romanian consumption being based on a very large proportion of imported products. An increase in GDP will lead to a higher negative trade balance therefore it must, imperatively, a modify in export structure in the sense of either adapting to global requirements or a higher quantity and quality production in traditional areas already.
