Abstract

This thesis deals with economy and its influence on developing and transforming the Vukovar-sirmium county in the period 1961-2010. Its area transformation is being demonstrated through the analysis of each separate economy activity. As far as 1991, the area of what is today Vukovar-sirmium county has been involved in ex-Yugoslavia state-directed economy. The most important companies were government-owned and they largely stimulated economic growth. This period has been characterized by intensive urban based industrialisation, which has initiated deagrarisation, deruralization and urbanization in the county's area. This thesis is displaying the interconnection between the economic and overall development degree and socio-economic, physiognomic and functional ambient transformation. The economy is being analysed through each separate activity, area distribution, property form, company size, employment rate, income extent, gross national product, mineral resource exploitation and foreign capital participation. Main reasons for Vukovar-sirmium county being one of the least developed Croatia's regions are: recent liberation war-Serbian aggression, downsizing/loss of the market, painful and slow transition into market economy, domicile bank system breakdown, reconstruction/development inequality and insufficient invester's trust.
