Abstract: The article focuses on the study of interregional interaction among the regions in the Central Black Earth economic region (CBEER) as one of the most stably developing Russian regions. It has been found that interregional cooperation is actively implemented within the macroregion due to the high agricultural potential, as well as intensively developing food, iron and steel, machine-building and chemical industries. The Voronezh region is a potential core and center of the promising Central Black Earth macroregion in terms of specialization diversification and the level of cluster development. The potential of the formation and development of interregional clusters in the food, chemical, iron and steel, machine-building industries, agriculture, and tourism is identified. It has been found that the traditional sector-specific approach still takes priority over more complex intersectoral and intercluster projects, while the strategic challenges of the “new regionalization of the country” necessitate the development of systematic methods of the spatial development of territories, with due regard to federal priorities, macroregional and interregional contexts, types of multistructurality, and prospects for the rational use of the internal potential of regions. It is suggested to use Smart Specialization as an alternative method for strategizing and choosing priorities for the spatial development of regions in the context of the changing vector of economic integration and the growth of global challenges and threats.
