We build an economic geography model with capital mobility and heterogenous fiscal policy in order to analyse the impact of eastern countries entrance in the EU in terms of location of production. First we show that in a symetic framework the fiscal policy is determined by the stage of regional integration. With low transport costs, a country shouldincrease its fiscality in order to attract multinational firms. Second, we introduce asymetriesin the model in order to capture the differences between south and eastern european countries.The simulations show that regional integration should lead to a an agglomeration proces in southeuropean countries. A way to curb this proces would be to set up a lower fiscality in easterncountries. (Full text in French)
