Summary
Economic development, as the original (natural) aspiration and primordial need of every individual, as well as society as a whole, has its own regional aspect in addition to the national one, which, under the influence of numerous factors, always takes place and is realized as an uneven development. The unevenness of regional development is, therefore, constant, that is, its existence represents a general legality.

In conditions where development takes place as a spontaneous and not as a socially directed process, unevenness leads to the appearance of large regional differences. That is why there is a permanent need to study regional development, and this need is becoming more and more relevant every day. This is, first of all, the result of the fact that during many years of research it has been confirmed that regional development, due to its importance and impact on overall socio-economic flows, quite justifiably represents one of the central areas of interest of economic science. In addition, the topicality of the study of regional development is growing as a result of the emergence and presence of large regional differences in the economic reality of many countries, regardless of their level of development.

Over time, in accordance with changes in the global environment, socio-political, and on that basis, economic systems, the way of observing and understanding regional development has also changed. Starting from the above-mentioned positions, the goal of the research is to, based on relevant theoretical knowledge, look at the origin and development trends of the theory and policy of regional development.
