Agriculture in Romania is the second most important economic sector. 50 % of all in Romania consumed meat stems from pigs. Also in Romania the consequences of political and economic reorientation are clearly perceptible. While in the 1990s, 13 million pigs were produced each year, the number decreased nowadays to 4.6 million. Most of them grow in non-commercial farms. But, there are first foreign agricultural companies that settle in Romania with the intention to produce pigs.

There is a well-developed university system for veterinarians and engineers but occupational training schools are missing which prepare for agricultural jobs. After the “revolution” 1990 all middle schools have been closed. As a consequence, there is a need to develop new training standards in agriculture. Similar to Bulgaria three qualification levels exist even if there is no specialization on pig breeding possible.
