ABSTRACT
Regional competitiveness is the source of national competitiveness. This paper presents multi-criteria decision making methods for evaluation of the regional competitiveness and regional differences and disparities. Specific indicators reflect the economic productivity of the region in form of factors of production inside of the region. The technology for the evaluation of regional competitiveness is based on the application of two methods of multi-criteria decision making. The first one is the method of Ivanovic deviation, the second one is the well known DEA. The results of the applications of the methods are compared on the basis of the competitiveness of the NUTS2 regions (V4 - Visegrad Four countries) in the EU within the period of 7 years (2000-2006). In particular, the disparities between the Czech and Polish NUTS2 regions are discussed.
