Possibilities for Cross-Border Cooperation in the Adriatic-Danubian Area
AbstractAlthough in this part of the European continent a series of success stories developed over the last years, such as the transnational automotive sector in the middle Danubian area, there is a lack of visibility of small and medium enterprises activity on transnational level. The main aim of our work is, by using adequate statistical methodologies and instruments, to find out which are the territorial concentrations of sectoral productive skills, in order to identify and define the strategic economic sectors at transnational level within the Adriatic-Danubian Area. We believe that by using territorial marketing techniques the competitive sectors, able to attract investment inflows and to have a positive impact upon the regional disparities, may be promoted in an objective manner. We intend to prove through the obtained results of our work that the cross-border cooperation could really improve the cohesion, stability and competitiveness of the Adriatic-Danubian Area, and could contribute to the integration process in the South-East Europe and to a balanced development of the whole European territory. Keywords: Cross-border cooperation, South-East Europe, Small and Medium Enterprises. JEL Classification: O52, R12, R58
