Changes in the Romanian automotive parts sector in the context of globalization


  • Bondoc, Maria-Daniela
  • Banuta, Mariana


This paper explores the changes in the auto parts sector from the industrial policy perspective of Romania, in the context of globalization. We propose to find the place of the means of transport industry in the processing industry sector and we studied the document of Industrial Policy for 2005-2008 in Romania. Another issue treated in our paper is the impact of the industrial restructurings in Romania on the human resources in the automotive industry. The Romanian national policies of development will be strongly connected to the EU policies and objectives as well as to its principles and regulations, to ensure an European style of development and to reduce as quick as possible the significant disparities versus EU. This connection has been determined and will continue to determine industrial reorganization which leads to unemployment and will have a direct impact on the human resources, including automotive industry and especially the automotive parts area. The directions of the Romanian industrial policies and the SWOT analysis of the automotive industry and automotive parts sector are a support to emphasize the changes that occur and which will continue to affect the production factors involved in this area.
