The newest development trends point to better and more appropriate use of resources and necessary production capacities for the purpose of successful agro-industrial reforms. The reform process within the agro-industrial business is supposed to rescue the country from the trap of medium development dictated by investors. The conducted studies indicate that there is a basis to improve the current state and the future development of agricultural industry in Serbie under the ongoing European integration process. Radical changes in economic and institutional infrastructure towards the agro-industrial sector’s competitiveness improvement are the most pressing challenges for regional economic policy makers and actors of transitional macromanagement. Increase of competitiveness will generate a new development potential which would contribute to the overall economic prosperity of the country.
