Romania’s economy began to transition from state control after the 1989 revolution that ended communist rule. Romania has worked to create a consistent legal framework within the market economy and investment. In 2007, Romania became a member of the European Union. The United States and Romania adopted a bilateral Joint Declaration on Strategic Partnership for the 21st Century. The goal of the partnership is to broaden cooperation between the two countries and promote free market opportunities, cultural exchange, security and democracy.
The U.S. and Romania have a bilateral investment treaty. The top areas for U.S. investment include consumer products, telecommunications and information technology, manufacturing, energy and services. A majority of Romanian exports to the U.S. include steel, rubber and plastics, clothing and chemicals. The U.S. and Romania belong to a number of the same international organizations including the World Trade Organization, United Nations, Euro-Atlantic Partnership Council, North Atlantic Treaty Organization, Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, International Monetary Fund and World Bank.
