In terms ofindirect effects, any significant cut back in European farming activity would in turn generate losses inGDP and jobs in linked economic sectors - notably within the agro-food supply chain, which relies onthe Romanian primary agricultural sector for high quality, competitive and reliable raw materialinputs, as well as in non-food sectors. Rural activities, from tourism, transport, to local and publicservices would also be affected. Depopulation in rural areas would probably accelerate.
