Proper strategic management of regional socio-economic development is impossible without strategic planning that provides a full analysis of the current development of the system and the formation of a desired image of its future development and the mechanisms for its implementation. An element of the goal-setting system in the process of strategic planning is the identification of priorities for socio-economic development that allow for more efficient use of limited budget resources. It has been offered to focus on structural-spatial type priorities, providing for the interconnection of structural and spatial changes in the system and an opportunity to solve restructuring problems by stimulating territorial development and, conversely, developing territories through support for specific sectors of the economy.

The methods of logical, comparative and economic analysis, tabular and graphical data visualization have been used. The structural and spatial priorities of the socio-economic development of the Rostov Region have been highlighted and the growth poles and strategic design initiatives of a structural-spatial nature defined in the Strategy for the Socio-Economic Development of the Rostov Region for the period up to 2030 have been systematized from the point of view of implementing the identified priorities. This, in turn, made it possible to consider the opportunity of realizing structural and spatial priorities within the framework of measures enshrined in the strategic planning documents of the Rostov Region using the example of agro-industrial growth poles, to propose an additional set of measures to implement the spatial development tool – to prepare and create agro-industrial parks in agro-industrial growth poles of the Rostov Region using the mechanism of public-private partnership.
