Abstract

The economic analyses outlined that the big differences between the Balkan countries economic structure and the average EU one is seriously negatively affecting their economic efficiency. It appears that the Balkan region is becoming the weakest European economic area – the new European economic periphery. It is outlined that the most proper policy that will not lead to problematic economic results for the lagging Balkans countries can be the one of making benefits from their geographical location. Firstly by realising economic cooperation within Balkan countries and secondly throw participating of the Balkans as a sub-regional structure in the Black Sea economic initiatives.
