Abstract: The objec­tive of this paper is to present the impact of invest­ments on the revi­tal­iza­tion of labor mar­ket in the Roman­ian rur­al areas through the imple­men­ta­tion of mea­sures that facil­i­tat­ed the diver­si­fi­ca­tion of eco­nom­ic activ­i­ties, this being a cross-cut­ting theme through­out the imple­men­ta­tion of the nation­al rur­al devel­op­ment pro­grammes. The sta­tis­ti­cal data reveals that agri­cul­ture, food indus­try and forestry are of pri­mor­dial impor­tance for the rur­al econ­o­my; and the infor­ma­tion on rur­al diver­si­fi­ca­tion and non-agri­cul­tur­al activ­i­ties is pro­vid­ed by the insti­tu­tions involved in the admin­is­tra­tion, con­trol and imple­men­ta­tion of rur­al devel­op­ment pro­grammes; their inter­pre­ta­tion being influ­enced by the mul­ti­ple dimen­sions of diver­si­fi­ca­tion. The diver­si­fi­ca­tion of eco­nom­ic activ­i­ties in the rur­al area ensures the cre­ation of new sources of alter­na­tive or addi­tion­al incomes for the rur­al pop­u­la­tion to coun­ter­act the process of the depop­u­la­tion of agri­cul­tur­al areas and to strength­en the eco­nom­ic and social fab­ric of rur­al areas. At the same time, the devel­op­ment of the busi­ness sec­tor in the rur­al area, by encour­ag­ing the main­te­nance and devel­op­ment of tra­di­tion­al activ­i­ties, leads to the diminu­tion of dis­par­i­ties between rur­al and urban areas.
Key­words: Rur­al econ­o­my diver­si­fi­ca­tion, Euro­pean finan­cial sup­port, Roma­nia.
