Inese Haite

Abstract


The economic constraints of Latvia have been connected with the unstable development of regions and city nets. The state territory characterizes the peculiarity of monocentric territory. In territories, which are located outside the monocentric place of action, the problems of economic development are main reasons for social and physical problems. The complex nature of these problems demands integrated, locally based approach for the development of cities and regions, as well as for the solution of problems mentioned above. Latvia has started the process directed towards the polycentric development of its territory. For a successful development of cities and attraction of European Union funds Latvia has worked out the city policy with the help of which the government seeks a solution for the development of cities and the means for solution of problems. During the research the author clarifies the interconnection between the defined economic variables; they are consolidated and therefore it can help to gain opinion on current synthesis of regional division in Latvia.
