Agro-Tourism Entrepreneurship In The Context Of Increasing The Rural Business Competitiveness In Romania


  • Elena SIMA

    () (Institute of Agricultural Economics, Romanian Academy, Bucharest)


The paper analyzes the most important methods for the promotion, stimulation and support of agro-tourism entrepreneurship, in the context of increasing business competitiveness in the Romanian rural area. The methodology used is based on the analysis and synthesis of information regarding the process of tourism potential identification in the Romanian countryside and the necessary mechanisms for the organization, development and connection of the Romanian agro-tourism to the international tourism system. The statistical data were completed with information from articles and studies published in specialty journals. The investments in agro-tourism, while capitalizing the local agricultural and non-agricultural raw materials have another great advantage, i.e. job creation by using and maintaining the local labor resources and revitalization of rural localities.
