Brief outline:
The scientific study incorporates the research analysis of councillors at regional level in the Primorje-Gorski Kotar County during 2013. It focuses on the councillors’ opinion on different issues closely related to local economic development. It also includes the analysis of the councillors’ attitudes towards different strategic goals, priorities and measures which have to be conducted to foster local economic development in the Primorje-Gorski Kotar County. In addition, the importance of decentralization for local economic development is analyzed. Therefore it is investigated if decentralization is prerequisite for local economic development and if further decentralization of public functions would lead to stronger position of counties in coordination of local economic development. Furthermore, the importance of different councillors’ tasks will be analyzed and specifically the importance of councillors’ involvement in coordination of local economic development. The study also gives recommendations for local economic development in the Primorje-Gorski Kotar County.
