Abstract

The Government Ordinance No 24/1998 sanctioned the post-1989 social and economic imbalances, especially in industry, by establishing a number of disadvantaged zones. These zones were defined as stricly territorially delimited areas featuring mainly mono-industries in a state of marked decline, employing over 50 % of the local active population which had to revert to other activities. The proportion of collective lay-offs surpassed 25 % of the total employed population. Another two relevant indicators were used to single out the less-favoured minig zones, namely, over 30 % unemployment rate as against the national average, the absence of means of communication and a poorly developed infrastructure. Until 2004, a number of 38 disadvantaged zones emerged. - (BJ)
