Main Trends Of The Romanian Agri-Food Trade With Turkey


  • Camelia GAVRILESCU

    (Institute of Agricultural Economics, Romanian Academy, Bucharest)


The paper empirically examines the evolution of Romanian pre- and post-accession agri-food trade with one of its main partners – Turkey. Facilitated by the geographic proximity and by successive trade concessions (free trade agreements, customs union), the trade flows increased almost continuously. The main product flows are analyzed in terms of values, quantities and directions. The results show that after accession, the Romanian agri-food trade with Turkey shifted to a positive balance, but despite the increasing trend of exchange values, the product diversification remained very low.
