An important objective of the European Union is to sustain progress both economically and socially, balanced and durable, through administrative divisions/regions located in the administrative hierarchy in a position immediately below the central level. In the last decades regions and regionalization were imposed, not only in European countries, as trends in territorial organization. In the process of regionalization, the development of clusters had a key role in a country's economic competitiveness. New administrative regions determine the appearance of new economic structures and cluster organizations can respond to problems in different economic areas. In Romania the stage of development of clusters is still early, but in terms of global competition for markets, economic power is needed, and that is why the idea of ??cluster associations should be sustained so as to promote a properly entrepreneurial climate. Clusters are accepted as a solution to the crisis, a tool for competitiveness and regional development. Considering the economic potential andRomania's current economic situation, we plan to discuss the issue of clusters in our country through content analysis, scientific observation, induction, deduction, considering the pros and cons of their development in the context of highly-publicized regionalization.
