Abstract


Gorj County is lying on a surface of 5, 602 km² (about 2, 5% of the Romanian territory), on the banks of Jiu river (the middle reaches of the Jiu river), in the South-West region of Romania country and the North-West of the Oltenia land. Gorj County was founded in 1998 and is included in Oltenia South-West Restructuring Region, alongside of other four counties (Dolj, Vâlcea, Olt, Mehedinţi), one of the eight regions under restructuring process at the national level and which, from the territorial point of view, correspond to some territorial units, the so-called NUTS-II (The Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics), according to EUROSTAT (European Distributors of Statistical Software) classification. Taking into account the relatively unstable structure and dimension, of the geographical space affected by the most significant human intervention into the national territory, the impact of diminished economic activities is extremely important. It is being noticed at regional and local levels, but also national one.
