Summary/Abstract: The economic literature grants a great attention to bank performance analysis, expressed in terms of competition, concentration, efficiency, productivity and profitability. The main reason for this special attention is the central role of banks in financial intermediation. The efficiency and competition degree at the level of banks and other financial institution are difficult, if not even impossible to directly observe, because the information regarding the production prices (or of credit rates) are not available. In this paper we analyze the performance and soundness indicators of the main Romanian banks, compared with main banks in the Czech Republic and Hungary.
