Materials and methods. The research taks were implemented through analyzing specialization indices in Volga Federal District’s branches of agriculture and industry. The research methodology was based on the systematic approach.  
Results. The authors theoretically analyzed the production specialization of regions, disclosed its determining factors, considered the industrial specialization of Russian regions, including the VFD regions, disclosed areas of specialization of Russian agricultural regions using the Chinese experience.
