Abstract

The study aims to analyze aspects of food security in relation to the agri-food foreign trade developments in the EU Member States prior and post Eastern enlargements. Given the multiple benefits of the open markets, relevant foreign trade indicators have been selected to be quantified: from the set of indicators established by FAO to capture several influences on food security, the cereal import dependency ratio has been calculated as an indicator of the food security variability/ stability; the competition effect has been assessed by measuring the relative competitiveness of the Member States’ agriculture on the world market. The results of the evaluations, based on Eurostat statistics related to the period 2001–2013, highlighted market share variations in Romania’s agri-food performances compared to the EU-27 trade partners and stability gains on the cereals market, in the two reference periods.
