ABSTRACT
Enhancing the competitiveness of industrial enterprises through accelerated development of research, technology and innovation isa decisive step towards the achievement of sustainable economic growth. Reducing regional economic disparity in Bulgaria as well as the economic inequality between the country itself and the other EU member states, requires the establishment of a more efficient and productive knowledge based sector of industry. The prime objective of the paper, therefore, is to examine the development of NER industrial enterprises in terms of their potential, competitiveness and position; to offer a sectoral and territorial analysis of the prerequisites for increasing the economic competitiveness of the region, its business enterprises and sectors of economy. In view of this, the paper, furthermore, provides some concluding observations on how the appropriate framework conditions for the full functioning of the industrial businesses in the region might be improved.
