Both regions, Orava and Kysuce, achieve below standard economical level, but with big natural potential for tourism. That makes this region very attractive out of all Slovakia.

Weighty problem of these regions is long enduring high unemployment rate, problems dealing with economic restructualisation. Among heavy limitation of economic development of this region is low technical infrastructure – it is seen especially a need of travel system modernising, than there are few favourable conditions for beginning new business activities – it make itself felt a negative atmosphere in region resulting from bad social situation.

Development potential of this region lies in energetic sources, material sources, regional traditions, relatively big offer of labour forces at different educational level, vicinity of poland and czech trades, which are usefull to support of trade exchange. There is also quality natural environment with corresponding apparatus and objects in all region. The region represents also suitable potential for establishing industrial and science-technological centres.
