RURAL ROMANIAN SPACE BETWEEN SURVIVAL AND BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES

MIROSLAV RAICOV, ANDREA FEHER

Abstract


In Romania, approximately 9.1 millions of inhabitants live in the rural environment. Attention over the rural environment is first of all drawn because of the lower life standard compared to the urban environment, of the lower income that is obtained therein, of the smaller profits of the economic activities from this environment. Poverty in the rural areas is due mainly to low agricultural productivity and low opportunities of employment in other spheres besides the agricultural sector. The development of the rural areas and reduction of the high level of poverty from these areas can be achieved through rural social economy development support and incentive programmes, development of the human capital and increase of the social protection level in the rural environment. Encouraging of the development of rural entrepreneurship may contribute to the increase of productivity in the rural areas, and based on it, to the increase of the life standards of the inhabitants from the rural areas.
