There have flown only a few amount of foreign capital into the area and the bulk of the enterprises are seating mainly in Mohács and Bóly. It may have different reasons, and slowly the infrastructural problems seem to be solved.
The lack of capital, characterizing the whole economy, adversely affects the possibilities of the industry. For developing the area, there is potential only in the agriculture, which has tradition and advantageous characteristics. Usually the industry is set for processing the agricultural products and serving the agricultural production.
This small territorial unit is located in the most diverse country by its nature and by its history, this is reflected in the vast number of the types of products liked to the tourism. The possibilities in the variegation of minorities, in the developing rural and wine tourism are still not exploited, but the potential in them are continuously attracting the tourists.
