In Greece the current administrative system of the 13 regions, as they are today, is believed to not have given the expected results. The policies and the sponsorships of each financial support of the European Union to Greece require a revamping of the management system of these regions into the new macro regions. In the current article we present the model of the macro region as an economic and spatial planning entity and its sustainability in accordance with a series of criteria. In particular, we examine the case of the recommended (northern) macro region which comprises the existing three prefectures of Epirus-Macedonia-Thrace, the frame and the development perspectives, the role of the urban centers and of the infrastructures, etc, with emphasis on the long term perspectives of the European Cooperation.
