The book discusses the main tools in the implementation of regional policy in the country, which according to the author can lead to the gradual overcoming of the negative tendencies and processes in the regional development of Bulgaria.
The author justifies a model for a new administrative-territorial division and country structure which is adequate to the processes of transformation in the last decades and serves as a sustainable territorial basis for the implementation of regional policy for a longer period of time. Protected is the thesis that it is rational to achieve the territorial overlap between the socio-economic regions, the districts and the planning regions in Bulgaria.
