The core objective of this paper is to asses the impact of different scenarios on the basic economic variables in Croatia and in the Bjelovar- Bilogora County, the region of Croatia. This allows the investigation of the medium-term perspectives of selected region with the particular reference to agriculture and overall employment patterns. In this analysis different amounts of the EU funds are injected in the national and regional I-O matrices to derive estimates of the impacts generated by different analysed policies and defined relevant scenarios. I-O brings useful insights into the differing effects on national and regional employment and other important variables stemming from the diversity of the Country's regions in terms of their economic development and structural characteristics.
