The paper makes an analysis of the business and rural development in the two countries
investigating the level of fund absorption from the rural development program mainly from Axis 1
and axis3. To compare the two axes we used a set of socio-economic indicators which were used in
order to compare the measures belonging of these axes. The paper uses comparative analysis to asses
the level of fund absorption for each measure compared in Romania and Lithuania. The results
highlight the need and support for structural change and rural diversification. The conclusion suggests
that for a better improvement of fund using there is a need for a better balance between different
measures within the axis when projects are submitted and contracted, more facilities in terms of
eligibility criteria and more information and awareness among farmers and local administration,
improved access to credit.
