The purpose of the investigation is to analyzethe elements of regional specificity of the four countries in South America and Romania, as well asthe effect they had on the trade developments Romania-Mercosur. The interdisciplinary pragmaticmodel (Singer and Churchman) with holistic character is the reference in making this essay.
