EACEA National Policies Platform: Youthwiki


3. Employment & Entrepreneurship

Most of the measures specific to the Romanian employment policy are not directly and exclusively targeting young people. A small subsidies for employing young graduates and young NEETs is offered to employers according to the law on employment and unemployment (about 470 Euro/mont). However, stating in 2009, the National Employment Agency implemented in a large number of projects funded by the European Social Fund, streamlining youth in employment policies.


All these measures and measures to develop youth entrepreneurship have been included in the Youth Guarantee national scheme and in some cases allocation and subsidies have been raised as a result of this focus on young people. But European Funds remain the most important funding source and incentive for the continuation of youth employment and entrepreneurship policies.


Yoth employment and entrepreneurship have been among the subjects to be developed at EU level by Romania during its Presidency of the European Council in January-June 2019. However, this didn't generated reforms of the Romanian policy in the field of youth employment or entrepreneurship.
