Summary/Abstract: After World War II, Romania established constructive relations with Eastern Germany, particularly because both countries followed the same political evolution. Each partner needed the other due to their different economic structure. Romania was in a position to export agricultural produce and raw materials, and Germany provided technology and industrial equipment to Romania, during the times of the Stalinist industrialization, when technology was extremely necessary but Romania didn’t have the foreign currency to pay for it.
