In the current globalization and IT development context, the modern economic environment is transformed: horizontal communication lines are foregrounded in the economic subjects relations. It is this kind of relations which is the basis for the new cluster-network procedure for organizing economic interactions when co-operation and partnership replace competition. The article highlights the issue evaluating the effectiveness of the implementation of policies in the field of localization of the cluster structures in the domestic economy. Based on the fact that the effective localization of clusters can be a valuable tool in balancing the spatial territorial development as innovation and socio-economic, the author developed a technique evaluation of clusters of localization efficiency by grouping areas in the level of clustering potential. Based on the results of the analysis, it puts forward the assumption that the implemented state policy of cluster structures support in the best prepared regions may have a negative impact on the development of the national economy as a whole. In particular, we are talking about a possible strengthening of the divergence of regional development and the further slowdown in economic growth.
