In today's world, the scenario of long-term economic development of any country presupposes the growth of its competitiveness in both traditional and new knowledge-intensive sectors, a breakthrough in improving the quality of human capital and labor productivity trends, the transformation of innovative factors into the main source of economic growth. Solving these problems requires creating a system of clear interaction between government, business, science and education through the use of effective tools of innovation development, among which an important role is played by the cluster approach. The relationship between the clustering process, strengthening of competitiveness and accelerate of innovation activity - a new economic phenomenon, which allows resisting the onslaught of global competition and properly meet the requirements of national and regional development. The cluster approach - this is a new management technology that allows to improve the competitiveness of a particular region or industry, and the state as a whole. And this approach has become a basic element of development strategies in most countries. The most important characteristic of the modern cluster is an innovative component, which determines its competitiveness. As a result, innovation clusters are beginning to prevail over the traditional industrial clusters.

Increasing climate change as well as the evolution of agricultural prices have led to important changes in the structure of crops cultivated predominantly in Romanian farms. If in the past the Romanian agricultural producer does not have a great deal of openness to the new technologies, as well as to new crops like sorghum and rapeseed ten years ago, it is noticed that, with Romania joining the EU, 2007, things they changed. By increasingly contacting European farmers with a much better yield per hectare, but also opening up to new technologies and the attractive price of oil crops, Romanian farmers have begun to focus their attention on far more attractive crops than In terms of sales prices and the application of new technologies to help them achieve high output to cope with European competition. By interpreting the statistical data provided by the National Institute of Statistics and Eurostat, a comparative analysis of the import and export of sorghum and barley was carried out in the light of the pre-accession and post-accession EU production to observe whether these crops provide a high level of profitability and if it is justified to cultivate them on extended surfaces. Although there is still much to be done in this area, we see that investing in high performance technologies and equipment, in quality inputs and hybrids, is a way of generating production levels comparable to those recorded at European level.

COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS OF THE LAND FRAGMENTATION AND ITS IMPACT ON THE FARM MANAGEMENT IN SOME EU COUNTRIES AND MOLDOVA

Published in Scientific Papers. Series "Management, Economic Engineering in Agriculture and rural development", Vol. 15 ISSUE 4
Written by Elena TIMOFTI, Daniela POPA, Barbara KIELBASA

The paper presents selected problems of farm management in terms of fragmented agriculture. The problem of land fragmentation was exemplified by the three countries of Central and Eastern Europe. The main purpose of the study was to compare the effectiveness of selected indicators of agricultural production in the three selected countries. For the analysis, the data on the concentration indexes was selected: Lorenz concentration coefficient, the Gini index, and territorial concentration coefficient (Gini C and Stuck formula). In selected countries, there is a large number of small and very small farms. They represent the majority of farms managed by private owners. To a large extend, they are called semi-subsistence farms or social farms. Some of them provide a part of their products on the market. Small farms are the part of the so-called European Model of Agriculture – a model that consists of small family farms. It is difficult to indicate correct definition of „small farm”, as it may be defined differently depending on the region or country. In the EU, small farms occupy a dominant position, being a constant subject of debates and policy. The authors of the article stressed the need of strengthening of the small farms position, for example by enlarging their acreage or by initiating horizontal or vertical cooperation, however, shall not impair the role of small farms. They are important in biodiversity protection, preserving the rural landscape, as well as by cultivation local tradition, culture and heritage.

Our investigations have focused on the analysis of several bread assortments manufactured by the largest producer in Romania, in terms of key quality parameters. There were analyzed four breads assortments coming from a local producer, namely Vel Pitar, as follows: whole wheat bread (500g), white bread (300 g), intermediate bread (300 g) and dark bread (300 g). Of each assortment were taken 15 samples from different batches. For each sample were analyzed: Weight (W, g), Moisture (M, %), Acidity (A, grade), Porosity (P, %), Elasticity (E %), Water activity (aW), Length (cm), Width (cm), Height (cm). We have identified highly significant statistical differences between varieties of bread (Student test). We find that all the significant correlations formed have particularized bread assortments, because of the fact that the assortments of bread did not show significant correlations between the same quality parameters. It is highlighted in this way, the differences between recipes and technological process. To conclude, we can say that the whole wheat bread and dark bread are most alike, in terms of quality characteristics, given that both had an increased fiber content. It was also noted the similarities of quality parameters in white and intermediate bread. All observed differences, with varying degrees of significance, constituted peculiarities of bread assortments taken for analysis.

As we all know, tourism means one of the most important socio-economic sectors of the world that is in a constantly expansion, which in the second half of the 20th century, recorded an average rate of 4-5% per year. This article aimed to highlight the existence of complexity of the tourism systems, thanks to which there are an infinite number of indicators that can quantify sustainable tourism development. According to the literature review there are quite many authors who have tried to develop such indicators and create some specific theories and methodologies of sustainable tourism. However, regardless the model or method applied the need for estimation and forecasting of tourism activity will remain an essential advantage in adopting strategic decisions in order to maintain the sustainable development of tourism.

This paper aimed to analyse the evolution of domestic production and consumption of chicken in Romania during the period 2006-2015. Romania's poultry meat supply was influenced by the value of inputs, reducing trend for the specific feed consumption, increasing the average daily gain, reducing mortality as a result of the implementation of good practices, and capitalization of production. This study covered the 2006-2015 period and was based on statistical data provided online by the Romanian Institute of Statistic and professional magazines. The production of poultry meat in Romania has been developed during the analyzed period and was influenced by the applied technology, as well as by impact of the subsidies which led to improvement of the production's performance. The results indicated by the regression method revealed the relationship between poultry meat production and the sales price of poultry meat in Romania, because the increase of the market price for poultry meat made this product more attractive to producers.

In the new economy based on knowledge, harmonization of the related accounting intangible assets is far from being completed. Conducted research identifies a number of controversies related to the recognition of separate initial measurement, subsequent measurement, measurement, depreciation and amortization of these categories of assets, as well as the requirements and applicability of accounting standards specific intangibles studied and the financial reporting related. The practical activity reflects the fact that unlike tangible assets or financial, the undertaking may hold a full control of the intangible assets, and this is the reason for which the activity of management and reporting of them in the current systems of financial reporting is quite complex. Poor control of these assets generates side effects on the ability of the undertaking concerned to obtain the benefits of the investment.

COMPARATIVE STUDY ON THE CHOICE OF BUILDING MATERIALS FOR CONSTRUCTING A HOUSE

Published in Scientific Papers. Series "Management, Economic Engineering in Agriculture and rural development", Vol. 14 ISSUE 4
Written by Adelaida Cristina HONŢUŞ

For some, building one’s own home can be a unique opportunity in a lifetime. That is why the choice of project, materials and finishings is paramount. Any homeowner wants a comfortable house, which is durable, insulated, easy to maintain, and, why not, built with least costs, but using quality materials. Brick and Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (AAC) are the most common materials on the Romanian market when it comes to building a house. Although these two materials have been on the market for years, most manufacturers still use them because of the advantages presented in time by houses constructed out of them. Brick or AAC homes have a longer life compared to the ones erected with other construction materials and feature increased safety in terms of structural strength. Also, brick or AAC houses have the advantage of much better sound insulation than wood, for example. In our country there are sufficient resources for masonry, depending on the cost invested by the owner, at the same time displaying the characteristic properties that can provide the required safety of the building. Ceramic bricks and blocks produced here have diverse sizes and shapes, being able to meet the demands of any architect and customer
