NEW APPROACHES OF REGIONAL POLICY AS A SUPPORTING FACTOR OF THE SOCIOECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT OF THE REGION
Increasing economic growth and employment, as well as improving the quality of life of the population, is one of the priorities of each country. One of the options to achieve these goals is to balance regional disparities. In the current globalization process, balancing regional disparities is all the more important. The European Union, as one of the most important communities of states, seeks to reduce regional disparities within the Community through a cohesion policy. The Slovak Republic, as one of the member states of the European Union, seeks to support the least developed regions through incentives and grants. Because of this, it analyzes the situation in the regions, identifies the least developed regions and takes measures to support them. This article deals with the socio-economic analysis of the least developed regions and analyzes the measures that are taken to support them. The results of the article can be used by public authorities when planning other activities that are expected to have a positive impact on regional development.
