The article analyses the possibilities for facilitating Romanian firms’ access to the European Single Market through clusters development and internationalization. Having considered the clusters’ role and characteristics, in order to determine their potential for growth and internationalization and the implications at a national, regional and firm level, this potential is analyzed in the context of the European Single Market. The cluster approach in the Romanian context, as status-quo and possibilities for development, is analyzed considering the specific policy, institutional and economic framework, providing recommendations for appropriate measures in order to greater benefit from the clusters’ potential and the opportunities provided by Romania’s integration in the European Single Market structures.
