ABSTRACT
The article is based on the analysis of the main changes from the industrial sector in Râmnicu Sărat city, during the transition period characterized through a wide economic restructuring process, by contrast with the previous socialist period. From the administrative point of view, Râmnicu Sărat is situated in the North-East part of Buzău County and it is a town of medium size, having especially an industrial role of main supplier of services for the population from its area. The economic evolution of Râmnicu Sărat city after 1989 can be identified with that of the majority towns of small and medium size from the country that somehow artificially appeared during the communist era. The industry of the city was affected by the restructuring and privatization processes that were the main features of the economic transition.
