[Challenge:Future] New Work Order
N.W.O.Team leader/member: Ingrid Rosca Romania
Summary about the competitiveness of Eastern Europe• To align to new Asian standards, vision and objectives, practitioners will need to tackle structural unemployment. Thus, EE will be able to fit between the countries with medium income population growing. Locally, Romania will have to stop brain drain, becoming a strategic partner.
Summary about the competitiveness of Eastern Europe• It should be redrawn parameters of fiscal inequity, and providing new models of production and consumption - currently, the purchasing power of Romanians (PCS) is 5 times lower than the average European PCS, even if labor productivity is 2 times smaller. So, we talk about recovery by the Romanian population structure, a redesigned model aligned geopolitical, multidimensional and multidisciplinary. For the year coming 2030, according to statistics, agriculture will be in constant development and with proper stimulation, may result alternative environmental / climate change and energy reform implicitly. Romania will be able to regain the performance of the exporter.
Highlights• Global economic interdependence and multilateral cooperation can provide information s and solutions on a sustainable economic recovery. Eastern Europe backup plan to overcome the slow evolution and adaptation compared to Asian countries could be rather a game of opportunities observed for only on a static view. Due to globalization capitalist crisis and its multi-dimensional structure, rules and norms of a "new reality" must be shared. The main priority should be creating new jobs, based on a social economy. Human capital is strategic tool- key through: EU funds absorption, mining, SMEs.• The concept of ‘Europe’ with its euro tool develops a populist system which Romania has to extract one single fiscal policy in order to overcome the sovereign debt crisis.
Discussions• A well-balanced plan between state’s responsibilities and civic responsibilities can rebuild the Romanian industry. Since 2008, the world entered on an economic and financial system reform. By default, EE, thus Romania, had to create a reform plan tailored to the needs of the new world order. All these proposed reforms, otherwise viable and adapted through Asian culture, will be fully and correctly implemented only through careful monitoring and continuous evaluation to promote industrial competitiveness, thus regenerating a strong economy.
Vision of the future Eastern European companies• Which industries will emerge in EE/Romania?• - energy, agriculture, tourism, Long Life Learning and infrastructure.• What will be the most wanted profession in 2022?• - entrepreneurship (backing up theory with relevant trends, sources, sooner, the vision it will become a practice in next 5-10 years).
Vision of the future Eastern European companies• How EE could escape the bind between the West and the Far East?• - respecting the ‘new economic rules’, backed up by regional, global trends, economic situation.• Which sectors within a company will be the most important?• - HR (In a long run, company can not succeed without sustainable business model and HR topic is one of most important things. So, nobody will invest in the company without some sort of return, and will also not invest if the company does not have sustainable growth position which brings long term stable profits*)
Sustainable development Visions description• 1. "By 2030, energy requirements could be 50% higher, and fossil fuels will account for 80% of energy supply. Dependence on energy imports will increase and the EU will import nearly two-thirds of its energy needs" => need to reduce energy consumption by using alternative energy. Energy investments must increase by at least 20%. At this rate, by 2022, energy indicator will be the level of normal development. Must be imported alternative energy models from Asian countries.• 2. Models of good practice taken from foreign educational system=> institutional development and entrepreneurship => development of informal income => services economy => increased productivity-BAT.
Sustainable development Visions description• 3. Agriculture - increasing grain production => export growth => opportunities own internal needs coverage => deployment of alternative energy. However, household income (currently 3%) increased contribution to the formation of reduced benefits therefore will be able to support growing food consumption (now exceeding 40% of total income) => long-term competitive advantages of organic agriculture => extend e-infrastructure within households.• 4. Tourism - ecotourism appearance => development of methods for environmental / climate change => tourism development for jobs development => increase foreign exchange earnings => stabilize currency local / diversification of investment policies => tourism development will assume rural economic development and regional development .
Feasibility and relevance• Is needed a more balanced plan between theory and practice. A solution could be an educational system based on companies sponsorship: company decide what courses are needed, an the student works within the company to sustain his fees, but to be motivate in the same time.• So, motivation on both parts is been made, also by financial.• Ignorance must be removed thorough reality. Although always a society that wants to evolve will require additions. Overcoming cultural barriers, cooperation (not only European, but Asian, American, Islamic), taking best practices and capacity to improve, assuming reality is the link between theory and practice.• Finally, key-word is: Flexicurity!
