After the deadline of the Lisbon Strategy was reached, its’ main objective is still actual, being maintained and promoted by its’ succesor, Europe 2020 Strategy. Employment is the most important component of welfare state policies and it supports both economic and social objectives. One of the most important factors to overcome the economic and financial crisis, starting the year 2009, was employment. Lisbon Strategy since its’ beginning, has been targeted towards acheiving an economic growth and creating new jobs, the EU leaders concentrating their efforts upon the future of economic growth and developing employment strategies post-2010. As a member state, Romania assumed the general targets of Europe 2020 alongside the national development tragets subsumed to this European document on delivering the social and economic target of Europe 2020. This paper presents a brief analysis of Romania’s performances for fullfilling the two flagship innitiavies that have an economic and social nature.
