Abstract

In generic terms, we are talking about tourism activity, which is an invisible trade activity because, through this activity, it is possible to obtain incomes, jobs, additional income and, thus, a more sustained contribution to the realization of the Gross Domestic Product in our country. Romania has special conditions because it has seaside, it has tourist resorts in the mountains and also has an agrotourism development process. Taking into account the capacity of Romania to offer tourism services, we find that Romania, both internally and especially internationally, needs to progress strongly.A series of indicators, arrivals, overnight stays, number of days, tourist capacity index and many other indicators reflecting tourism activity are analyzed in this article based on the study.There is a slow increase in tourism activities regarding the access of foreign tourists to our country, but we find a more pronounced increase of the tourism performed by Romanian citizens abroad. It also appears as a paradox in that, although real net incomes are low, the population spends part of their holidays in neighboring countries, which probably offer better prices and quality.In the survey we made comparisons between a number of aspects, such as: the increase compared to the previous month in 2017, taking into account the seasonal character of some tourist activities, especially the coastal ones, but also comparisons with the similar periods of the year previously carried out under the same conditions. In general terms, these results are satisfactory and show an increase in tourism activity.
