Comparative Analysis of the Processes of Regional Specialization and Concentration in EU
AbstractThe study discusses the development of the regional differences and the integration processes in EU in accordance with the changes of the regional specialization and the industrial concentration – theoretical and empirical aspect. The development of these processes in Bulgaria is analyzed in the context of the similar processes running in some countries members of EU and Romania. This allows determining the expected tendencies according to the level of economic development, branch structure and regional differences. Based on empirical analysis the potential winning and losing regions are determined. Some conclusions are made concerning the opportunities for the regional economic policy to shade the negative effects as a result of the increase of the regional differences.
