Contemporary trends in tourism development around the world show that rural tourism is one of the most prevalent types of development as a selective offer. It is a form that constantly receives new values. This is reflected both by the increase in the number of tourists engaged in this activity, by the volume of generated revenues, as well as by the emergence of new service providers and the development of economic and non-economic active actors in rural areas. Rural tourism attracts the attention of the wider demand of tourism services for new contents. The contemporary circumstances of rural tourism involves tourism the demanders of specific service and have traditional, environmental and challenging affinities. In the structure of the tourist demand, the rural preoccupation is focused on the expressive selectivity that RN Macedonia can provide in this sense. New activities and rational use of resources represent the developmental basis of this type of tourism. The interconnectedness of the stakeholders in this activity requires that the affirmed and sophisticated tourist demand in modern conditions can represent a factor for rural tourism to establish itself as a selectivity that can have a positive impact on the tourist market performances.
RN Macedonia needs to follow the positive examples of the countries and regional units that, through the development of rural tourism, encourage the development of the overall economic and social relations. Therefore it should have a priority character in the planning documents. In this context, the Sub-Strategy implies undertaking measures and activities that established this status of rural tourism as a selectivity within the overall development of tourism which encompasses different branches and activities.
The Republic of N. Macedonia has great potentials that are underutilized. It can be concluded that in this regards there is a real need to accelerate this process. In this sense, the strategic approach to rural development involves improving the situation and identifying the potentials at its disposal.
The criteria for valorization should allow determining the directions in which rural tourism should be developed. This includes valuing the elements and contents of space in order to improve the quality of these types of tourism products. Therefore best practices from the Macedonian surroundings and the world should be taken into account. The basic paradigm is its self-sustainability, which implies the mutual activities by the local community and the state institutions, the management of tourism destinations and the management of sectors that are directly related to rural tourism. That includes determining the optimal use of the available potentials which will allow the integral management of this selectivity as a crucial benefit
