Abstract

The research focused on the investigation of the comparative advantages of agri-food products in Romania estimated for the pre- and post-EU accession period. The method of calculating the degree of trade specialization applied to the agricultural sector was used. The index enables to evaluate the contribution of each product corresponding to the scale of trade, providing for the classification of products according to their level of specialization on international markets. The empirical results indicate a downward trend in the level of specialization in international trade for most Romanian products in the investigated period, except for cereals and tobacco in the postaccession period, as well as sharp annual fluctuations in cereals, oilseeds and tobacco evolution.
