    Romania is expected to return to economic growth in 2011, after a 1.2 percent drop in 2010. Even though, in the beginning of the crisis, the government didn"t seem to be aware of the effects of the international economic turmoil, in 2009 they were forced to resort to an agreement with the international financial institutions, to sustain the budget deficit.

    The agreement of 20 billion Euros with the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank and the European Commission was accompanied by drastic austerity measures, which were adopted in mid-2010. The VAT was raised from 19 to 24 percent, and wages in the public sector were slashed by 25 percent.

    As a result, inflation climbed to 8% in 2010. According to IMF estimates, economic growth will be fueled by exports and industry this year. According to analysts, adjustments are sorely needed when it comes to tax evasion, the pension system, agriculture, infrastructure and management abilities. In their opinion, predictability and stability is needed to encourage foreign investments that Romania is depending on.
