The article investigates the transformation of approaches to understanding the processes of regional economic integration. The macro-region as a structural element of regionalism is explored. Criteria for typology of regional economic integration are systematized and divided into dichotomous and trichotomous. Factors influencing regional integration and current tendencies of its development are determined. A modern group of regional integration associations is identified, thus improving the existent typology. It includes regional and multilateral associations, hub and spoke regionalism, gravity agreements, plurilateral, bilateral, minilateral regionalism.
