Botoşani and Suceava counties are parts of the “Upper Prut” Euro-region. This was established on September 22, 2000 in Botoşani, by signing the Agreement on the establishment of the Euro-region, consisting of the two counties from Romania, Bălţi and Edineţ from the Republic of Moldova and Chernivtsi region (oblast) from Ukraine. Later on, other regions from the Republic of Moldova and Ukraine were included in this Euro-region. The “Upper Prut” Euro-region is defined as an integrated space with specific policies in various sectors. The socio-economic developments demonstrate that specific regional peculiarities are essential when addressing issues of sustainable regional development nature. Being a region with significant economic, social, cultural and other resources, this Euro-region demonstrates a dynamic character and requires a specific approach. This paper is intended to highlight and analyze the economic and social processes that took place here and the prospects offered. This will be achieved through the SWOT analysis of the Euro-region, highlighting the specific strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats.
