ABSTRACT. – Aspects of Economic Geographical Disparities with Industrial Specificity in Crasna Basin, Sălaj County. Before the 1990s, the drivers of economic development in the county of Sălaj were mainly based on industrial activity, which also generated a rupture compared to the lifestyle and traditional mentality of the inhabitants. The only outlined direction of progress was the industrialization with a powerful multiplying effect which was shaken by the legislative and managerial decisions, national and particular decisions, following the changes of the last 26 years (privatizations, lack of outlet, migration of workforce, technological and entrepreneurial innovations etc.). Through the thematic of this research paper, the analysis of economic geographical industrial disparities, in the basin sector of Crasna River highlights the territorial administrative structure and historical specificity in the economic context of the area; pursuing the identification of industrial entrepreneurships from the research perimeter, which was dominantly rural. The presence of industrial activities is defining for the town of Şimleu Silvaniei, found on the second place as importance in the county, after the city of Zalău. Another perspective will be offered through the analysis of disparity aspects as a result of the accounting of the data of companies with industrial profile.
