Solomiya Mykhaylivna Kloba


The article provides the economic assessment of the development and competitiveness of the united territorial communities of the Lviv region. Actuality and the necessity to improve the competitiveness and attractiveness of united territorial communities are grounded in order to create a favourable social and economic climate for entrepreneurs, investors, residents who are temporarily arriving and gaining benefits both in the domestic and foreign markets. A model of regional competitiveness is considered. A detailed assessment of the economic indicators of the united territorial communities of the Lviv region is conducted. It is concluded that decentralization has positively influenced most of the united territorial communities of the Lviv region. The creation of communities allows them to control their own income, as well as spend money on solving urgent problems. However, along with the benefits of the process of decentralization, we can also see some disadvantages in reform and risks.
