Abstract

Starting from the idea that the European Union aims to reduce the disparities among the member countries, to help them reach a level of development which can lead to a high level of employment, of productivity and of a good social cohesion, the problem of a durable development still remains a global objective of the countries that are members of the EU, objective that can be attained by an international cooperation which aims towards economic growth, social development and protection of the environment. After an analysis of the socio-economic background and the investment level in Romania, new tendencies were identified which can be edited, financed and developed in Romania, and which can determine a real, constant and long term economic growth. The problem of the social economy, still not well enough regulated in Romania, can lead to the adoption of innovative actions to capacitate disadvantaged categories. In this direction, premises can be created to support disadvantaged categories, which will determine an increase of the rate of employment and which can offer solutions to fight poverty. An essential role in facing the challenges raised by the medium and long-term development is played by the funds assigned to Romania within the operational programs which can lead to the decrease of the regional and social differences now present in Romania. This paper presents the good practice activities in the system of social economy present in other member countries as well as the measures taken by some member countries for good governance.
