                                       Introduction

The Romanian government has been relentless in exploiting every available opportunity in order to improve its economic position and sustain its competitiveness in European business. While there have several cross-industrial capacity enhancement programs by the government, it appears that there is room for improvement in capturing some unique opportunities and resources (Draghici et al, 2010). Among the trends in the management of the industry by a majority of governments in the European Union is the integration of revenue earning sectors into the national economy through public and private sectors partnerships (Bailey and Richardson, 2010). According to the author, it has been identified that tourism has one of the largest global economy contribution at about six percent. It therefore means that business integration must be facilitated to tap into the huge potential that the industry has globally. To facilitate such economic integration, potential service sector giants such as tourism have been identified with regard to the relevant capacity that it has to the national economy. Tourism has evolved to be among the most stable industries whose future projections can be enhanced to facilitate quick economic recovery, especially at a time when the global economy is still experiencing the aftermath of the recent economic crisis. While the performance of the global economy seems to continually depend on service industry, especially in a large portion of Europe, it is certain that tourism is still underexploited.

National governments have not been taking the industry with the attention that it deserves. There are several ways that the government can make the much needed revolution input to enhance the benefits obtained from the industry. With a particular assessment of the Romanian tourism industry, possible government contributions will be explored in order to inject momentum into the sluggish economy. An extensive array of options and alternatives will be explored in order to maximise the benefits that the government can obtain from the tourism industry. Among the Scandinavian countries, tourism has a huge potential that can be used to increase the recovery capacity of the national economy. Romania has several tourism opportunities that can improve the entire country’s economy with the appropriate review of Sustainable Tourism Development Strategy (STDS), enhancement of the local tourism sector and creation of appropriate branding that will inject new momentum into the industry and economy (Beaumont and Dredge, 2009). The capacity of the relevant opportunities towards rejuvenation of the economy will be conducted to ensure that government policy in the industry captures the economic framework.

Research

Aim

The aim of the study is to provide the possible interventions that the Romanian government needs to introduce to the tourism industry in order to make significant economic contributions. The following research questions will be considered in the research.

Research Questions

What are the European conditions of the tourism industry likely to affect Romanian performance in the market?

What are the specific capacities in tourism that the government of Romania tap in order to improve economic benefits from tourism industry?

Are there threats and risks of the industry that can affect the performance of the Romanian national economy?

What insights can the Romanian government adopt from modern economic framework and tourism particularly management?

Objectives

To assess the potential alternatives that the Romanian government can explore in order to attract service industry benefits for the national economy.

To maximise local, regional and international tourism market exploitation through government policy approach.

To explore the capacity of Local Tourism Governance Approaches (LTGA) under the Romanian economic improvement context

Literature Review

Research will entail the assessment of the actual position of the Romanian government involvement in making contributions to the tourism industry. In terms of policy, government micro and macro economic policy framework that directly touches on the tourism industry in Romania will be analysed. This will facilitate in ascertaining the possibility of loopholes in the government policy contribution to the enhancement of the economy through the industry (Bailey and Richardson, 2010). Having identified the strength of the policy framework, the research will be able to draw inferences that can assist in comparison of the best practices in Europe and among other leading tourist destinations. According the applications of this approach, it will be established that certain policy measures facilitate direct economic contributions to the national economy while there is a possibility that negative impact can also be felt from policy interventions.  For instance, the policy framework level of involvement of the local communities in establishing a multi-sector partnership in promotion of tourism has a direct impact on the tourism industry. Establishing whether the government makes contributions to facilitate or discourage appropriate partnership will be performed on a cost benefit analysis. Recommendations will then be formulated t facilitate the appropriate reorganization of the economic policy framework that the Romanian government has.

Efficacy in economics has been incorporated into various industries in order to maximise and optimise operations and revenues obtained thereon.  In order to facilitate the appropriate context interpretation, the tourism industry will be assessed for its unique characteristics in order to engage economic assessment of policy framework. Property use issues that include natural resources and its regulation by the government will be assessed to ascertain restrictions emanating from the government policy on natural resources (Bailey and Richardson, 2010). According to the authors, it is also important that the level of government’s participation in infrastructure needs to be established. In light of this perspective, the research will also assess the level of government facilitation through support of infrastructure. Infrastructure in the tourism industry will involve various perspectives such as construction and legal policies that enhance the industry. Alternatively, it will be ascertained of the involvement of various governance approaches. According to Beaumont and Dredge (2009), it is important that the various levels of government facilitation for tourism are assessed. In this research, the amount of contribution from the government at various levels will be used to determine how the commitment from the governance aspects of the economy applies into the industry.

Regarding the assessment of the strategy applied by the government to improve tourism in the country so that it can make contributions into the economy, the strategies in use will be assessed. According to the study conducted by Cottrell and Cutumisu (2006), there is an important contribution made to the economy depending on the sustainability of the industry. Sustainability of the industry will be assessed from the comparison of the performances achieved from the region’s forecast. Depending on the capacity that the Scandinavian countries display regarding the tourism industry opportunity, inferences will be drawn from an analysis of the tourist attractions that Romania has. Sustainability assessment in terms of the capacity that possible optimization of the industry will make to the national economy will be used to make the necessary recommendation towards design and establishment of strategies to assist in economic recovery. Besides referring to the forecasts from the industry capacity, it will be necessary also to consider tourism resources management capacity. From the management capacity survey issues, a needs analysis will be performed to recommend managerial realignments to assist in creation of necessary links with the economy (Briedenhann 2011). Sustainability will also incorporate determination of the community involvement capacity into the management of the tourism recourses. These elements of industry sustainability will be used to determine the level of economic dependence that the Romanian government can make on the tourism industry. Reliance on the industry for economic benefits will be used to determine the necessary input that the government will need on a cost benefit analysis.

In terms of determination of sustainability levels, it is important that communication links between various stakeholders is important for policy implementation. Local communication between stakeholders in the industry will b.............
