This paper focuses on the changes in regional specialization and geographic concentration of economic activities, which occurred in Romania from 1995 to 2009. The study mainly highlights the evolution of agriculture, as economic activity. The evolution of regional specialization and geographic concentration of agriculture is studied in correlation with the gradual implementation of the Common Agricultural Policy and the Romanian agriculture integration process in the European market. The statistical indicator used within the empirical study is the Herfindahl- Hirschman Index. The results of the study reveal that the transformations that occurred at the Romanian economy level in the pre-accession and post-accession process led to minor changes in specialization of agriculture. The concentration of agriculture and its sub-activities was not affected.
