ABSTRACT
This study deals with a few relevant indicators that clearly and consistently illustrate degradation processes in seven borderline rural settlements of the mountainous region around Vršac. The above mentioned processes tend to affect demographic phenomena and processes as well as the economic situation, i.e. the structure and functioning of agricultural production, in the first place. What is characteristic about this region is stagnation and deterioration of major branches of economy, not only due to specific natural qualities of the mountains in this region, as well as general current economic politics towards most borderline areas in Serbia, but also due to the fact that these villages cannot even find stimulating economic support in cooperation with nearby borderline region of Romania, which is actually one of the poorly developed regions of the Romanian part of Banat.
