Written by Elena NIREAN

Climate, topography and soil are natural conditions of basic agricultural yields. In general, Moldova has favorable climatic conditions and relief. Soils in the North have a high degree of fertility, while the central and southern regions are of average fertility. At the same time natural calamities such as droughts, late spring frosts, hail and floods have a destructive impact on crops. Climate instability is one of the main causes of unstable yields and is an inherent risk for agriculture of the country. More than that, most of the plots lose their natural fertility and require rehabilitation.

Written by Pavel MOVILEANU, Veronica MOVILEANU, Svetlana SASU

In this article the authors will analyze the development of Moldavian organic agriculture in European agriculture field. Organic farming is an agricultural system designed to provide consumers with fresh, tasty and authentic food, at the same time respecting the natural life cycle of the systems. Moldavian population needs organic production for its health and welfare. The authors consider the organic farming as a solution that is able to prevent a future food crisis, as world’s population is increasingly facing an acute shortage of food. Based on the literature in the field the authors describe the extension of certified organic areas in the period of 2003-2011, that had increased by 270 times from 80 ha to 22 102 ha. Moldavian local market of selling the organic products is almost non-existent because of the small farming practice in the country. The conclusion is that the premises for the development of national organic sector should be connected, exclusively to export markets at least for medium term. These are mature and can "digest" the local organic products, offering fair prices to local producers.

The major significance of the actual financing context is that, through the community budget, the rural communities can receive money in order to support development strategies, the financing under programs specific to the rural sector can be correlated to the financing programs by regional policy, environment policy, enterprise policy, education sector policy, etc. But, in order to benefit efficiently by the community interventions system, the major problem for the Romanian rural communities is related to: the identification of the different funding opportunities; the elaboration of a project portfolio adequate for the won development options; finding co-financing sources.Taking into consideration the complexity of such an approach and considering the particular situation of the Romanian rural sector it results that the key role in the rural development and use of the opportunities provided by the European context belongs to the public administration. The good information and information dissemination at the community level, possibly with best practice examples from other EU counties can have an essential role in attracting funds and projects that improve the effectiveness of the development strategies.

THE ROMANIAN CONSUMER PERCEPTION ON THE BENINCASA HISPIDA FRUIT

Published in Scientific Papers. Series "Management, Economic Engineering in Agriculture and rural development", Vol. 13 ISSUE 2
Written by Carina DOBRE, Elena TOMA

Benincasa hispida, also known as winter melon or ash gourd can be considered an exotic plant on the Romanian market. Its waxy aspect and special taste are not common among the vegetables traded in our country and introducing it in the eating behaviour of population can be difficult. The paper presents the main results of a questionnaire based survey regarding the consumer perception on the smell, taste and texture of the B. hispida fruit. The fruits tested were obtained during a field research carried out in an organic experimental field from south of Romania (in the period May-October 2012). In our approach to present the links between the perceptions of consumer, medicinal proprieties of the fruit and price, we have concluded that this plant can be accepted by the Romanian consumer if the marketing strategies are concentrated on the promotion of its curative proprieties.

TOURISM DESTINATION MAPPING THROUGH CLUSTER ANALYSIS

Published in Scientific Papers. Series "Management, Economic Engineering in Agriculture and rural development", Vol. 13 ISSUE 2
Written by Ion DONA, Dan POPA

The concept of tourism destination appeared in theory and practice after the development of mass tourism and tourism marketing. They are theoretically “travel market units” or areas that are capable “to exist independently and efficiently in the tourism market according to the principles of marketing and the policy of tourism product”. However the main idea of which we start this paper is that the most of tourism destinations are not born naturally, they were created by implementing an efficient development management of attractions, accessibility and amenities at a specific area level. We consider that the stakeholders can intervene in an area with touristic potential to support the development of rural tourism and implement measures that can transform it in a touristic destination. With this purpose in mind we present in this paper a methodology to map the areas with rural tourism development potential by utilising cluster analysis. The case studies are the villages from Gorj County with touristic potential that have a proximity access to high value natural and/or anthropic touristic resources. The main results of our research is that in this county exists five areas where can be implemented tourism destination management plans and through which can be assured a better promotion and valorisation of rural tourism.

Written by Dragos SMEDESCU, Gina FÎNTÎNERU

Tourism is an important economic activity in most countries around the world. Tourism industry is recognized as a sector which support and sustain economic growth. For many developing countries, and not only, tourism is one of the main sources of foreign exchange income and the number one export category, creating much needed employment and opportunities for development. Viewed as an export industry of three G’s: get them in, get their money, and get them out, tourism has assisted many developing countries to move away from a dependency on agriculture and manufacturing. In 2012, the total impact of the tourism industry contributed with 9% of global GDP, having a value of over 6.6 trillion US dollars and 260 million jobs. Over the time, various methods and instrument were developed with the aim of measuring tourism contribution to economic growth of a country, namely input-output analysis, computable general equilibrium, tourism satellite account, econometric models, survey techniques and so on. For each of this instrument an important amount of data are necessary in order to comprise the economic growth induced by tourism.
