Specialists in territorial planning, geographers and urban planners alike had the difficult task to scan the Romanian sector of the Tisa River catchment area in order to identify and analyze its particular structural and functional features, namely those features that facilitate or not its integration into the geosphere of the entire Tisa River basin (along with the Hungarian, Ukrainian, Slovakian and Serbian sectors). And this was not an easy task, given its area of more than 71,000 km2, the number of population, the physico-geographical and economic complexity, etc. The study findings are related to the analysis of cross-border interrelations, the elaboration of the SWOT analysis and, hence, foreshadowing the future development directions based on this analysis.
