The moderneconomy is characterized by a high activity of the processes of integration andglobalization. In such conditions, the success and sustainability of thedevelopment of the state is largely determined by the level of competitivenessof its national economy, which, in turn, largely depends on the parameters ofregional development, which are sufficiently isolated parts of the singleeconomic space of the country. Regions that effectively use the availabledevelopment opportunities find rational ways to expand it, create favorableconditions for doing business in a single economic space and growingcompetition, get more opportunities to solve problems of balancing andself-sufficiency of regional and local budgets, employment, quality of life. Onthe contrary, regions that are unable to maintain an appropriate level ofcompetitiveness and effectiveness of measures to form and use social andeconomic potential are not able to create appropriate competitive advantages,which ultimately is the reason for strengthening the differentiation ofRussia's regions to the most important indicators of social and economicdevelopment. The article is devoted to the research of priority directions ofdevelopment of the regional economy on the example of the Stavropol Territory.The study is based on the method of analyzing hierarchies, based on which,using expert assessments, a matrix of priority directions for the developmentof the region's economy is constructed, and key factors that influence thesolution of this problem are revealed. The results of the research showed theneed to identify the functional subsystems of the region's economy in thecontext of exacerbation of spatial competition. The proposed method ofimproving the territorial management mechanism ensures systematic ordering ofthe regional economy.
