Abstract

The concept of inclusive growth is one of the important issues in the urban economics literature and has been considered in empirical studies recently. For this purpose, the aim of this paper is to investigate the relationship between income inequality and GDP growth in Iranian provinces over the period of 2000-2014. To conduct this study, the econometric model has been estimated by applying seemingly unrelated regression in panel data for 30 Iran’s provinces. The main findings of this paper shows that the Gini coefficient as a proxy for income inequality, unemployment rate have negative impact and initial value of Gini coefficient has positive and significant effect on the growth of GDP respectively. The overall conclusion of this study suggests that inequality of Iranian provinces can be declined by improving employment and growth of GDP in Iranian provinces.

Abstract
Despite the high potential of the Romanian tourism competitiveness and reducing interregional disparities, the results obtained in the last fifteen-twenty years are far below expectations. This paper aims to identify national and regional characteristics of tourism in Romania during the period 1990 to 2010 and to evaluate the most important factors that influenced foreign tourists’ arrivals in Romania and the departures of Romanian tourists abroad. As infrastructure is one of the main obstacles to tourism development we have used data from development regions in order to explore the changes in the concentration of accommodation capacities. We have developed econometric models estimated on panel data to assess the implications of road infrastructure development and accommodation capacity utilization on economic results of tourism. The results indicate the important relationship between the territorial distribution of road infrastructure and the concentration of accommodation capacity.
