Romania and its 19.3 million consumers offer increasingly viable market opportunities for U.S. food and agriculture. In 2019, Romania imported $9.43 billion of food and agricultural products, of which two percent, or $163.9 million, were sourced from the United States. During the first eight months of 2020, total Romanian food and agricultural imports increased by 5.9 percent over the corresponding period in 2019. Despite this overall increase, U.S. exports declined, mostly due to changing market dynamics in the wake of COVID-19. U.S. products with strong market potential include fish and seafood, tree nuts, groundnuts, wine, distilled spirits, dried fruit, and innovative food processing ingredients.
