Impactul crizei globale asupra structurii comerţului exterior al României
[The Global Crisis Impact on Romanian Trade Structure]


  • Georgescu, George


Under the global crisis impact the structure of international trade flows witnessed significant changes. In the case of Romania, paradoxically for an emerging country, in terms of product composition during 2007-2010, the share of capital goods decreased in total imports and increased in total exports, while the share of intermediate goods recorded an opposite development. In terms of competitiveness, no evidence of significant changes has been found, the most important export chapters having comparative advantages connected with the processing trade operations. Obviously, Romania lacks an export strategy able to sustain the national exporters on new foreign markets and reducing the trade balance deficits.
