Common Agricultural Policy Reform. Perceptions and Opinions – A Case Study


  • Rusu, Marioara

    (Institute of Agricultural Economics, Romanian Academy, Bucharest)


After one decade of structural, legislative and institutional reforms, of economic and social restructuring for accession preparation, the Romanian agricultural sector has to face again a significantly changed situation in the context of the Common Agricultural Policy future Health Check. This paper catches the perceptions and opinions of the Romanian specialists regarding this subject. A survey was implemented in the period 12–18 November 2007. Most of the specialists’ opinions and perceptions who answered the survey questionnaire converge to the idea that Romania does not have its own agricultural policy and the undertaken actions are circumscribed to and almost fully dependent on CAP. The suggestions made are in the direction of adopting an agrarian and rural development policy where the CAP–related objectives are only a part of it. The difficulty resides in the fact that the problems of the Romanian agriculture and rural area are so many and deep.
