Introduction. Labour migration is mainly amplified by economic reasons. Labour force migration is a phenomenon which may have some benefits on international markets such as the European labour market considering its role in stabilizing the European labour market. At the same time it may represent a major benefit in balancing unemployment rate in the Euro area, or even in some European states which are aware of the labour market imbalances. However, it should be noted that population aging is recorded in the regions where dislocations occur: it is a phenomenon which may generate a decline in the economic growth and affect the living standard, should there be no thorough analysis. Therefore a closer monitoring of migration is mandatory, as aging population is one of its consequences, which must be investigated in the regional context.
Aim of the study. This paper emphasizes that population aging concerns the world, the public environment and scientific research and a discerning approach may create the assumptions for economic revival. Workforce nowadays acknowledges realities involving permanent adjustment and reorientation depending on developments in the technical and technological fields and its migration has become an almost instantaneous phenomenon. For this purpose, it is necessary to consider the fact that along with migration, dislocations in the active population occur, which often are not immediately supported by new contingents; therefore disturbances are created both on the labour market but also in the demographic plan. It is important to seek solutions to minimize their impact on the Romanian economy affecting economic growth and the level of development.
