Keywords: Romania | rural decline | rural regeneration

After the communism system collapse in December 1989, the Romanian rural space has known a continuous decline from both economic and demographic points of view. About 70% of Romanian agricultural land is out of work and the majority of food production for population is coming from abroad. There is no governmental economic and politic strategy for the revival of the economic life in our villages. At the same time, the process of decreasing rural population as a result of high rate of mortality, accompanied by migration abroad, both represent the main causes for rural general decline. For stopping this phenomenon it is obviously necessary to begin one broad action at the national level which must involve the central administration and the entire society to properly establish a new way of rural development, process which can be named rural regeneration.
