The study of regional specialization and of concentrating the economic activities contributes to the identification of the place and role of each economic activity within the national economy and its growth potential. Thus, the possibility to emphasize the contribution brought by each economic activity to the development of each region is created. The aim of this paper is to verify relation between the evolution of the regional specialization and geographic concentration of economic activities in eight Romanian development regions. For this purpose, an empirical study of specialization and concentration was performed, at the level of the eight regions of Romania, before and after the moment of integration in the European Union.
