MetadataShow full item record
In the present article an analysis is made of the achievements and problems faced by the six planning regions in our country, related to their goals for reducing regional disparities. This is achieved through the analysis of key indicators that serve to measure cohesion in each of its three aspects. In this way it will be established whether the EU Cohesion Policy conducted in our country in the first for our country (MFF) 2007-2013 and in the second (MFF) 2014-2020 have an effect and to what extent this effect has the effect of reducing or deepening regional disparities. For the purposes of the study, the mean-absolute deviation (MAD) and the coefficient of variation (CV) were used as tools for quantitative data analysis. The results of the study confirm the thesis of scientists and authors working in the field that there is no significant progress in reducing disparities between regions in our country.
