Abstract

Agriculture is the sector that satisfes the demand for food of the population of a state, thus providing key solutions for combating poverty and / or hunger. The need for funding in agriculture is increasingly debated at international level, especially as discrepancies arise in relations between the main actors involved, namely: farmers, credit institutions and national and European public authorities with the aim of the European funds management. The relational problems, and not only, of the three actors mentioned above are manifested in various forms. These are discussed in this paper. Under these conditions, it is proposed to strengthen the relationship between the three actors, frst by assessing the existing problems and, secondly, by solving them.
