This paper about the „Regional Developments in the Republic of Khakassia“provides general geographical information about the Republic of Khakassia,a rather unknown Siberian region, and investigates the latest developments in demography and economy within the republic. For these purposes, Russian secondary and tertiary sources were examined and official statistics were used to compare the developments within Khakassia. In 1997 Klüter predicted that the concentration of the population in the Abakan-Černogorsk Agglomeration will further increase and that the regional discrepancies within Khakassia will grow. The results of thisresearch confirm Klüters thesis. The current economy of Khakassia is even more dominated by industrial mono-structures than in the mid-nineties. Based on this research, a significant diversification of the economy of Khakassia within the near future is not to be expected.
