Role of Regional Economics in planning

Abstract Submission Deadline : November 30, 2024

Manuscript Submission Deadline : December 25, 2024

Special Issue Description

Increasing returns to scale, externalities, and proximity are the key themes of regional economics. These elements alter the way conventional economic theory appears. Macroeconomic theories that are applied to a regional economy are likewise disturbed by distance (space). relate to the economic benefit of a location and the greatest level of human activity to contribute most significantly to the overall development and prosperity of the area. Regional science, whose previous development was spurred by Walter Izard, shares many traditions with regional economics, and some economists’ frustration with the regional economic analysis can lead to transportation, trade, and new investment prospects. It enables the participant nations to overcome the limitations of their tiny domestic markets and to take advantage of economies of scale. Regional planning focuses on the effective distribution of infrastructure development, land use activities, and population increase over a greater geographic area than a single city or town. Urban planning and regional planning are related because regional planning relates land use practices on a larger scale. You may fulfill your community’s economic goal and take charge of your economic future with the aid of an economic development plan. It can aid in bringing together locals from the public and private sectors. You and your partner can decide on the objectives for economic development and lay out a plan for achieving them.
