In recent years the unicipality made some smart moves attracting investmens and building small modern factories, and is therefore among the most prosperous municipalities in the Dalmatian inlands, otherwise quite poar regions. The modern highway Zagreb-Split passed through this year, making of Dugopolje an important crossroads for the way towards Dubrownik and south.
