Romanian public administration reform is one of the main challenges Romania faces today. The development of the public services is one of the main goals of the administrative reform. This article contains information about the efforts that Romania made in the process for reform through long term development, public services evolution boosted by the financial decentralization but reduced by the effects of the financial crisis. Even though the European Commission recognized the progress made so far by the Romanian authorities, strengthening the institutional framework and stressed in particular the importance implementation of various measures, urgent needed to address the weaknesses that persist as the central government and in the local. This process is slow and the performance is compromised by the financial crisis. We are on the verge of elections time to stabilize the system although we predict that we should orient towards progress instead of stagnation.
