Under the global and financial crisis impact, the structure of regional and local trade flows witnessed significant changes. In this context, Romania’s exports are dominated by the cars, devices, electric equipment, transportation means, agricultural food products’, chemical, basic metals, textiles and footwear industry, etc. The exported goods have, to a large extent, a low technological level, being controlled by a small number of companies that have a relatively high share in their volume and being, as a rule, direct foreign investments. In the Romanian' top of exporters and importers we found the same counties where operates, as a rule, at least one large company with foreign capital. The study paid a specific attention to the crisis impact on foreign trade in Romania, focusing on export sector as revealing the endogenous growth generating potential at regional and county level.
