THE EFFECT OF THE EXISTENCE OF CLUSTERS TO REDUCE REGIONAL DISPARITIES IN THE SLOVAK REPUBLIC

Abstrakt:

Regional differences in Slovakia, as well as in other EU countries, are becoming more and more observable. These economic, social and environmental differences show different forms. Different indicators are used to quantify these differences. The article deals with the issue of interregional differences and their measurement in the Slovak Republic at the level of NUTS 3 regions, using a composite indicator. The aim is to assess the level of regional disparities in relation to the existence of clusters in regional development. The basic sense of regional development is to sustainably improve the quality of life in the region. Achieving this basic goal requires a comprehensive approach to assessing regional differences. From the results of the analysis of the assessment of the reduction of regional disparities, it is not possible to state a statistically significant decrease in regional differences. A certain tendency was observable, but still there are still large regional differences in Slovakia, as in the economic, social and environmental spheres.
