Description
Summary:Nowadays, the concepts of globalization and competitiveness increasingly come to the fore. Territorial entities are looking for the correct direction of development at all levels to answer the accelerated world economy changes by Internet and other developments. With the help of the European Union, Hungary is also looking for its place and its development opportunities in this regional competition. This study is an abbreviated version of a multi-year research. Since joining the European Union, Hungarian regions were not always able to take advantage of the opportunities provided by the EU. In our study, we are looking for the disparities within the territory of the Central Hungarian region without Budapest. What is the grade of homogeneity in Pest County? It seems to be proven that even the most developed region of Hungary has significant regional disparities in terms of competitiveness. After the global economic crisis of 2008-2009 the importance of comparative advantages and competitiveness have been increased at both national and regional levels (KÁPOSZTA - NAGY - VILLÁNYI, 2008; HORSKÁ - SMUTKA - MAITAH, 2012).
