My interests over the last 25 years in the problems of economic competition and, in particular, in the peculiarities of concentration at microeconomic level, have led me to verify the syntagma that, from a causal perspective, a country's competitiveness is always generated at the microeconomic level and is supported by the macroeconomic level. The information gathered during the transition period concerning the internal and external markets and the complex behaviors of Romanian and foreign companies allowed me to develop my own vision regarding Romania's strategic priorities at the 2025 horizon.
Applying, as in the case of multi-criterial nodal analysis of system of companies, the principle of identifying the priorities that account for 80% of the system's performance, I set out in the following a set of strategic priorities that I consider essential for Romania in 2025.
The study includes the set of strategic priorities accompanied by several additional opportunity studies.
I point out that the proposed model is not new. It is the third version*, adapted to the new conditions of the Romanian economic reality as compared to the original version of 2013.
* The first version of the model was published in Piața Financiară magazine in November 2014 –Special Edition: “Romania after 25 Years” and in the form of a synthesis in Foreign Policy Romania, in August 2015. The first version was included in the work “Opera Omnia”: Some Microeconomic Milestones in the Transition Process in Romania, published in 2015 by Editura Economică and laureate of the 2015 “Eugen Carada” Prize in Economics, awarded by the MLNR at the proposal of the Romanian Academy.
The second version of the model was published in Piața Financiară magazine, in December 2016 – special edition “European Romania – 10 Years in the European Union”.
