Abstract

Starting from Michael Porter‘s statement, according to which the cluster, the simpleconcentration, pack or spatial, territorial agglomeration of SMEs, specialized in a field (service,product, knowledge) or interrelated areas, can generate sustainable competitive advantages in themarket (including global) in this sector of specialization, in this article I will try to address theissue regarding to the implementation of regional cluster concept and of sustainable regionaldevelopment in the ‘Apuseni Mountains‘ area, taking into account as nucleus the mining projectfrom Rosia Montana (Romania), which could represent a real lever and a good example forstimulating the mining industry competitiveness, both at regional and also at national level. Theidea of designing a regional cluster model, that has as ‘motor drive‘ the mining project from RosiaMontana, which otherwise should be like a point of ‘concentric radiance‘ in the purpose oflaunching of new economic activities and of developing of new specialized firms, could contributeto the increase of employment and of competitiveness of the companies in the region and implicitlyto the improvement of the life of communities in which the cluster will be implemented, bringingalso significant benefits to the Romanian state, both directly, but also indirectly through themultiplier effect and thus providing an example of good practice for other initiators of regionalclusters.
