The activities of a village are ensured not only through functioning of the agricultural sector, but also through creating conditions and development of effective mechanisms to boost rural economy.

The article deals with the content of concepts that make up the system of rural economy and rural development. It discloses the multifunctional role of a village as an original socio-territorial system. The author studies branches and activities, comprising the system of rural economy, and distinguishes factors and conditions, influencing a level, pace and efficiency of rural economic entities. The work reveals specifics and distinctive features of rural economy in the Komi Republic. It shows problems of a Northern village, such as low rural incomes, poor infrastructure, and working population outflow. The article discloses influence of the demographic situation on village and rural economy development. The paper analyses the state of rural infrastructure.
