Preferred estimation methods are Granger causality test and panel regression/cointegration estimators. The study found that fostering export-oriented growth policy triggers technological progress/productivity increase through spillover effects attached to international trade (intensive growth). On the other hand, increasing trade volume/exports stimulate capital accumulation and simultaneously enhances the demand for imported capital and intermediate goods that further complements capital accumulation (extensive growth).<br>Keywords: intensive growth, extensive growth, export, total factor productivity, capital accumulation</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Davit Belkania Copyright (c) 2020 Regional and Business Studies 2020-07-31 2020-07-31 12 1 1–17 1–17 10.33568/rbs.2456 Resources of Sustainable Economic Growth and Development <p>The Sustainable Development Strategy implies a targeted long-term process that affects economic, social, environmental and institutional aspects of life. The goal is to meet the social and economic interests of citizens, reduce poverty, reduce unemployment and gender inequalities and reduce negative impacts on natural resources and the environment, resulting in long-term economic growth with economic efficiency, technology and innovation. Accordingly, in 2015, the United Nations adopted Resolution A / RES / 70/1 - Transforming our world: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, based on three dimensions of sustainable development: economic growth, social inclusion and environmental protection. At the end of the 20th century, parallel with the theory of development, which turned into the concept of sustainable development, there was globalization that integrated the entire world regions in order to gain as strong economic and financial positions as possible on the world stage. Today, Serbia is not in a position to choose whether to engage in modern globalization processes, but it must continue the initiated transitional reforms and accession to the European Union, regardless of the economic, political or environmental consequences. By implementing national policies, Serbia should aim at national and economic sovereignty, which will further influence sustainable development. Only by changing the current economic policy, by creating a national strategy based on the exploitation of domestic economic and industrial potentials, by reducing unemployment, social responsibility and individual freedom, economic growth and sustainable development can be achieved. This work, besides the introduction, consists of materials based on the presentation of the sustainable development strategy of the Republic of Serbia and also presents the results and discussion that draft the current situation with possible solutions to achieve sustainable development in the future. Finally, the final ratifications are provided.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Jelena Ignjatovic Copyright (c) 2020-07-31 2020-07-31 12 1 19–28 19–28 10.33568/rbs.2457 Spatial Illustration of Indicatorson the Example of BiomassPotential for Energy Purposesin the Tabi District <p>This paper is intended to show the importance of spatial accounting, the practicality of<br>mapping and illustration. To this end, biomass potential that can be grown on arable lands and the resulting indicators were studied on the example of the Tabi járás (Tabi district) of Hungary. The processed data was projected onto maps for mapping the absolute potential, but also specific indicators such as values per hectare or per capita. The results are plotted in equal intervals and along with natural fractures classification of the data. The results thus obtained emphasize the heterogeneity caused by spatial unevenness. Taking such information into account can improve the efficiency of state interventions, investments, developments and the decentralization of other decisions.</p> Ádám Csuvár Róbert Barna Copyright (c) 2020 Regional and Business Studies 2020-07-31 2020-07-31 12 1 29–43 29–43 10.33568/rbs.2458 Global Agruciltural Responsibility <p>Today global agriculture is confronted in several areas with various interests in environmental protection. The global food economy will face major challenges in the coming decades. There is a need to use new technologies that can increase productivity while preserving natural resources and biodiversity, in a climate-friendly way and by maintaining site-specific ecosystem services. The purpose of this study is to explore the potential role of agroforestry systems in the sustainable development of global food production. In order to achieve this goal, we carried out the systematic processing of international and domestic literature and secondary data.</p> Boglarka Szerb András Bence Szerb Arnold Csonka Copyright (c) 2020 Regional and Business Studies 2020-07-31 2020-07-31 12 1 45–55 45–55 10.33568/rbs.2459 Game Damage tendencies by Kaposvár Forestry - from 1998 to 2017 <p>In Hungary, most of the game damage is located in a few counties. 75-80% of the agricultural<br>game damage originates from 5 counties, but those take only 24% of Hungary’s area. During the hunting season of 2016-17, the amount of agricultural game damage almost reached 2.6 billion HUF and a quarter of it was paid in Somogy County. SEFAG is the largest game management company in Somogy that manages half of the county’s forests. The investigated Kaposvár Forestry is one of the eight forestries of SEFAG and it has 7 600 hectares hunting area. Our research shows that game damage is decreasing and it is centralized around a few settlements in this area. Also, we found a significant change in the structure of crops affected by game damage.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Király Martin Bernadett Horváthné Kovács Kinga Szabó Róbert Barna Copyright (c) 2020 Regional and Business Studies 2020-07-31 2020-07-31 12 1 57–68 57–68 10.33568/rbs.2460 The Applicability of Kapferer’s Brand Adentity Prism in City Branding through the example of Kaposvár <p>Kaposvár started to consciously build its brand in 2016 when the General Assembly accepted the city branding strategy of the settlement, its management has been trying to refine and clarify the positioning of the Kaposvár brand. Kapferer’s prism may make it feasible. This essay makes an attempt to estimate the applicability of brand identity prism on the city branding strategy of Kaposvár, thus exploring the opportunities in city brand positioning provided by Kapferer’s method. The paper examines the desirable image of Kaposvár detailed in the strategy from the six aspects of Kapferer’s prism, and tries to define the attributes which may strengthen the Kaposvár brand.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Kristóf Kovács Copyright (c) 2020 Regional and Business Studies 2020-11-17 2020-11-17 12 1 69–79 69–79 10.33568/rbs.2461 Content <p>-</p> Róbert Barna Copyright (c) 2020 Regional and Business Studies 2020-11-18 2020-11-18 12 1
