    The levels of development disparities vary from region to region so many countries suffer from this problem established regional development agencies for minimizing these differences. Regional development agencies are established with the aim of invigorating regional economies and they aim to unearth regional internal dynamics and convert these dynamics into economic and socio-cultural values in both national and international arena. Thus, agencies can attract investments and contribute to the minimization of unemployment. Furthermore, they can invigorate regional economies and contribute correspondingly to the country’s economic growth. The purpose of this study is to examine the potential roles of regional development agencies in minimizing regional development disparities and their contributions on regional economies. Comparison of Turkish and Romanian development agencies is the sample case for this study.
