The paper focuses on Romanian experiences regarding the EU funds absorption by administrative-territorial units. Local public authorities implement EU projects in order to develop their communities and to satisfy the people needs by public goods and services. The main issues that we will study in our paper are: (i) the evolution of EU fund absorption in local budgets, (ii) EU project financing throughout local budgets, (iii) the possibilities and opportunities to finance the EU projects. We will use the SWOT matrix in order to analyze internal and external conditions on the topic of the EU funds absorption by Romanian local public administration and we will recommend improvement measures in this specific field.
