The Romanian Constitution preserves the content of article 136 par. (4) the inalienable character of public property simultaneously with the legal procedures by which it can be capitalized. In this case, we mention the four types of ways to enhance the public domain as follows: administration, concession, public rental and free use. Concession is the traditional means of capitalizing on public property that has played a special role in creating and developing the modern state and its organization, due to the fact that it has capitalized on natural resources, used unproductive welfare in the public domain and thus facilitated the development of civilization. The purpose of the concession is to reach the position that a good belonging to the public domain can be used under the conditions of private property.
