Summary/Abstract: The promotion of European Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) generates an influx of approximately 8 billion euro non-reimbursable funds from EU to Romania, until 2013. However, recent studies prove that for the 2004 EU adhered countries the first five years of PAC application have been a success, while for Romania, the success is not obvious at all. After three years of EU membership, the situation of agricultural and food sector is not substantially better from any point of view, although there are weak signs of a certain closeness to the agricultural European model. The Common Agricultural Policy is due to be reformed by 2013. The Commission presented in November 2010 a Communication on "The CAP towards 2020", which outlines options for the future CAP and launches the debate with the other institutions and with stakeholders. However, the actual development and European funds absorption rhythm raise a key question: will Romania be prepared to apply the reformed CAP?
