The Romanian society being affected by the restructuring process, the economy of Călăraşi county has a potential to re-launch, based on the following strengths: agricultural potential, technical potential, water resources that can enhance the development of fish breeding, commercial, industrial and tourism activities on the Danube and inner rivers; the geographical position at the border and at the crossroads of the transit roads between Asia and East Europe; access to the navigable way. Calaraşi county being close to the Danube creates a remarkable tourist attractiveness, but insufficiently used. The big number of islands with a unique picturesque, the ramification of the main waters through unique braches, create both a natural scenery which involves relaxation but also good conditions for the sportive hunting and fishing. The present research analyses the natural, economic and human potential that Calaraşi county posses, starting from the premises that its agriculture constitutes a main sector in the occupied county economy (47.2%) as well the agricultural surface (84%) from the total county surface.
