Keywords: Rural Development; Agribusiness Systems; Multi-Sectoral Models; SAM Multipliers; Sub-System Approach.

This paper presents a sub-system analysis based on a social accounting matrix specially built for the Basilicata region. Such analysis aims to evaluate the weight (both as to production and as to employment) of Basilicata's agricultural and agribusiness sector on the regional and extra-regional economic system; it aims to describe how the value added and the wealth generated by direct, indirect and induced effects is distributed among the various productive sectors; finally, it highlights structural strengths and weaknesses and suggests possible development strategies also in relation to the new planning of rural development policies. The results presented show that the availability of a properly disaggregated regional multi-sectoral model of the economy, is an important tool to support regional policy decisions for both innovation and the development of rural areas.
