In the European Union regions are territorial units of medium size, created with the purpose to absorb efficiently the European Union funds for regional development and to interpret and research the regional statistics. In Romania there are 8 development regions. The regional development of tourism must be a sustainable one. The analysis of some indicators show that after a long period when the tourism had a descendent curve, in the last years this has had a positive evolution in almost all regions. The tourism may become an important component of the economy, which can determine important mutations in the territorial field, contributing to the social-economic growth of a region. In the last years it is noticed a small growth of the tourism, tendency expected in the future, too.
