Summary, etc. Abstract: The paper presents another metrics of Romania’s export competitiveness, based on the evolution of international export rankings (positions) of our country, in the period 2001-2014, according to SITC (2 digits).We consider that increasing or decreasing number of won or lost positions in the world positions rankings by Romanian exports in the world hierarchy can indicate respectively an increase or decrease in competitiveness. The change of Romania's position in the hierarchy world’s exports by countries in 2006, 2010 and 2014, as compared to 2001, constitutes a sui generis indicator of its export competitiveness, according to the number of positions (ranks) won/lost in the framework of export world ranking. If Romania climbs in the world export hierarchy we consider an improvement of export competitiveness. Conversely, a loss of positions in the hierarchy means a diminishing in the competitive strength of exports. This indicator provides a new means to assess the investment of a country, for a specific category of exported goods in the world market, has improved/worsened its competitive position, surpassing or, on the contrary, remaining behind some other competitors. The main conclusion is that the number of win ranks in the analysed period was much higher than that of lost positions in Romania, respectively 68 positions gained as compared with 28 lost positions. This conclusion is corroborated with the economic, social, environmental, technological importance and share of each SITC export group. Keywords: JEL classification:
