If, regarding the available natural and capital resources, all the other conditions are equal; some regions are still able to provide a more rapid economic development. Even, if the resource base is less available, nevertheless there are regions which are developing rapidly. This is due to another available qualitative resource, namely, human capital. The economic development of the region is a process that involves changes of natural, cultural, economic and social environment favourable for the whole society. The concept of economic development is broader than the concept of economic growth, which is most often expressed by the product value. However, as the economic growth is part of the economic development process and can be measured quantitatively, it is often used in the evaluation of the economic development.
