The year 2007 marked a historic moment in Romania joining the European Union, although at that time was the Member State with a GDP per capita well below the European average and the use of EU funds and own resources to stimulate investment was a necessity. Accession to the European Union does not necessarily guarantee improved economic performance in agriculture, and it was clear from that point, that an increasing share of services in GDP will occur with the relative decline in the share of agriculture and industry sectors affected by a long and difficult transition. However, the main resource of Romania remains farmland, but growth performance in agriculture depends primarily on Romania’s macroeconomic policies and not joining the European Union. One of the obligations that Romania has assumed in the Treaty of Accession to contribute to the achievement of a united Europe was fundamental restructuring of agriculture and stimulating rural development. Developing the agricultural sector aim to overcome structural problems (weak endowment with machinery, excessive fragmentation of agricultural land) and increasing the competitiveness of Romanian products domestically. Although this step was intended to lay the foundations of the European agricultural model, characterized by viable operating structures, agricultural progress in Romania in the period 2007 - 2013 has been elusive. The agricultural support measures were insufficient to reach the European agricultural objectives and, finally, the results were partial and unsatisfactory.

Keywords: resource, macroeconomic policies, agriculture progress, fragmentation of agricultural land, competitiveness.
