|Initial position / background / local context of the proposed project / the starting situation or local context in which the projects is going to operate||
At national level, Romania faces massive emigration of the population, especially of young people. This problem can be identified most easily at local level, in the villages. There are fewer and fewer young people settling / working in rural areas. Territories are currently facing a lack of both qualified and unskilled workforce. LAG Podu Inalt Vaslui has financed both agricultural and non-agricultural business. Now is the time to stimulate local actors for them to develop their businesses and create new opportunities.
Business development in the rural area is a point of support for young people from the villages through the opportunities created: well-paid jobs, quality local services and products.
