Maribor is the economic, business, administrative and educational centre of the Podravje development region and is closely connected with it.

The Podravje region unites 41 municipalities and is the second largest development region in Slovenia in terms of population. In economic terms, the Podravje development region is extremely strong. There are 57 business-production zones in the region and most companies are engaged in production (metal and food) activity.

Edvard Rusjan Internati onal Ai rport, only 11 km away from the Maribor city centre, also represents a great development opportunity for the region. The passenger terminal was completely renovated a few years ago. It is an excellent basis for the development of logistics, tourism and other aviation-related activities. For this reason, the area around the airport is planned to enable further development of various strategic activities in the near future. These include logistics, tourism, hospitality, aircraft maintenance and others.
