Rural Entrepreneurship represents the area which reveals new meanings in the context of reorganization of the labor market affected by the global crisis. Traditional rural entrepreneur spirit, oriented mainly by the agricultural and commercial activities is refreshed by the opportunities of establishing the production facilities who value the local workforce. In the context of defining the specific economic competences of Rural Entrepreneurship is highlighted that each economic unit is facing with a set of productive opportunities that cover different possibilities, including possibilities for expansion. However, rural entrepreneurship can be applied both in economic (business) and social areas, thus expressing a behavior which can appear multiple and complex. In Romania, entrepreneurial activity is relatively low, but the potential for development in rural areas can be put in value by creating and setting up new companies in the market and applying quality standards in educational programs focused on specific economic competences.
