Regional development agencies in Turkey were founded in the process of full membership negotiations with the EU on the advice of the relevant EU institutions to meet the need of compliance with the EU's regional policy. These regional development agencies were established in order to develop a sufficient capacity that can contribute to the homogeneous development of the entire country by reducing regional inequalities in the country locally and on site. These development agencies are 26 in total and 23 agencies cover more than one province, while only Istanbul, Ankara and Izmir provinces are represented by one agency. Established with a uniform governance model, these agencies have been operating for more than 10 years. However, it is thought that these structures, which are organized uniformly throughout the country, will not be able to fulfil the targeted success properly in eliminating regional inequality. In this study, the possible causes of this inadequacy and the compliance of these agencies with the governance approach are examined. In addition, the model of multi-type development agencies at provincial scale covering a narrower area has been expressed and evaluated as a proposal. In this context, it was emphasized that this agency setup specific to each city could be a better model in providing on-site development by activating the local economic dynamics.
