European cohesion policy implemented in EU member states from Central-Eastern Europe during the EU financial perspective for 2007-2013 has been focused on the convergence, aimed to speeding up the elimination of disparities in the development of the least developed Member States and regions. The main objective of the analysis carried out in the article is a preliminary assessment of its effectiveness. The analysis was performed with the main macroeconomic parameters directly related to the objectives of cohesion policy, such as financial allocation for the implementation of cohesion policy and the level and changes in GDP per capita. Preliminary results indicate a progressive convergence, which, however, was slightly “stopped” during the economic crisis.
