Taking into account these results and international comparisons, in Romania, in 2006, which represents the preparatory year for the impact with European insurance market, the consolidation process of insurance industry has been continued, by the capitalization growth of insurance companies, fusions, changes in the shareholding structure and portfolios transfer. At the same time, by the implementation of new legal stipulation, one can notice a growth of the preparation level and professional improvement of the employees from the insurance domain, with positive effects on performed services quality and on the information given to consumers of insurance products.
