Economic diversity or economic diversification refers to variations in the economic status or the use of a broad range of economic activities in a region or country. Diversification is used as a strategy to encourage positive economic growth and development. Research shows that more diversified economies are associated with higher levels of gross domestic product.
- Non-connected diversification - creating a new area. The process is slow, because it is needed to create a whole infrastructure, but the profit would be higher.
- Connected diversification is based on an economical mechanism for expanding the available potential. For business development it means low risks and good margin.
- Combined diversification - more frequently both methods are used together.
