Nowadays specialists in various
fields of activity are focusing on issues connected with globalization
due to their great impact on the development of national economies.
Due to globalization, Romania has started a number of reforms
by means of which prices and markets have been liberalized,
foreign trade control has been reduced, currency convertibility
has been introduced and changes have started to be made in
the ownership structure, all leading to increased competitiveness.
Therefore, ensuring competitiveness is a major priority not
only for companies, organizations and individuals, but also
for the academic environment.
Direct foreign investments are perceived as an important and
essential element for the process of changing and re-launching
the economy, representing the main catalyst necessary for
market economy and increased competitiveness in Romania. In
the 21st century, the flow of direct foreign investments has
greatly developed due to the massive expansion of transnational
corporations – main elements of the globalization process.
Last but not least, due to the great development of commercial
exchanges between countries, foreign trade has become one
of the key factors for economic growth.
Under these circumstances, we can consider that globalization
and competitiveness represent the greatest challenge of our
century, most specialists considering that Romania’s
own survival depends on the way in which these concepts are
put into practice.
