The purpose of this paper is to put in perspective the trade policy before and after Romania's accession
to the European Union as well as the impact felt by the variation of prices both in foreign trade and
domestic trade, advantages and disadvantages of Romania's convergence to EU trade policy. This
paper has particular importance given that these changes affect us at both macroeconomic and
microeconomic level. The aim of the study is to weigh trade policies post - accession and pre-
accession and to analyze the economic impact. We aim to show the consequences that has had or
would have had to have positively on the balance of payments and trade policy on post accession, and
multilateral and regional commercial effect. We are interested to watch and to prove if there was
positive impact on the role of economic diplomacy and the role of economic policy abroad for
promoting and sustaining economic interests and trade sectors, Romanian public and private externally
and increasing contribution to attracting foreign investments in Romania and expand cooperation with
foreign partners on third party markets.
