In contemporary economies, agriculture has positive spill-over effects and contributes in valuing inland potentials and creating a competitive and well functional economic system. The recent evolution of the Romanian agriculture has imposed a new and determinant trend of valuing internal potential of growth in a larger perspective of Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) transformation. The main goal of this research is to present and analyze the relations triggered by the convergence of Romanian agriculture to the new CAP perspective form a larger perspective of European comparisons.
