Highlights Of Romania’S Contributions To The Eu Agricultural Sector, On The Brink Of The New Cap


  • Mirela Adriana RUSALI

    (Institute of Agricultural Economics, Romanian Academy, Bucharest)


The research focused on Romania’s contributions to EU-27 agriculture compared to the Member States, on the brink of the new CAP reform, from the perspective of the main statistical and synthetic indicators: 5% (7.8 billion Euros) share in EU’s gross value added, in 2013, due to a share of crop output of 6% and animal output of 2.4%; small shares both in exports and imports – the Romanian agri-food exports to the EU had small market shares, although an increasing trend was noticed in 2001-2013; the highest market share value of the period was in 2013, i.e. 1.2%. Romania’s agri-food trade balance had significant deficits, on the average -1.1 billion Euro in 2001-2006 and widened to a historical value of -1.9 billion Euro in 2007-2009; it continued with a balancing tendency up to the year 2013, which marked a positive trade balance of 343 million Euro, unique performance obtained in the last quarter of the century.
