Production of wholesome food and pure organic production is practically non-existent.
There is no database of households, therefore no accurate insight into the number and structure of households, their orientation, existing resources, potential and willingness to modernize production.
Tourism is not adequately developed, but there is significant potential for development of primarily hunting and fishing tourism (forest, fishing pools, two lakes), but in addition to lack of promotion and tourist infrastructure, particularly important is the lack of accommodation facilities.
