Abstract

The growth of Romanian Gross Domestic Product (GDP) has acted on the increase of food consumption, on the implementation of agri-food sector and on the level of farmer's income, even if one of the main negative bottleneck of this growth has been the emigration from the countryside, whose workforce has been partially re-employed in urban territories. The purpose of this research was to assess by a quantitative approach main nexus between the growth of Gross Domestic Product and the increase of agricultural GDP; besides, another aim has been focused on assessing the role of financial subsides allocated by the CAP in contrasting the emigration from the Romanian countryside. The Moran’s index has been pivotal in estimating the spatial autocorrelation in all Romanian counties between the variable Gross Domestic Product, the level of agrarian GDP and rural emigration. Findings have pointed out a dichotomy between Romanian regions and a positive role of financial subsidies allocated by the CAP in alleviating depopulation in rural territories.
