Agriculture today enjoys of a particular attention in all countries of the world, regardless of the level of economic development. In the contemporary world, the most economically developed countries are also the largest producers and exporters of agricultural products.The purpose of the paper is to emphasize:

- The particularities of agriculture have changed the European agricultural map after the accession of the new member states.

- The percent of the agriculture in GDP is different: so it represents 2% from GDP in the old Member States and 3% in the new Member States.

- Agriculture, being an element of the economic system, largely depends and creates dependence on the other elements of the system.

- Agriculture can become the engine of Romania's development.
