The total area of the village is 5385 ha , from this 374 ha inner area and 5011 ha rural land. It is made up of: 3900 ha of plough-land, 52 ha of forest, 387 ha of water, 107 ha streets and railways, 11 ha of orchard, 17 ha of vinery, 185 ha of meadow and 570 ha of pasture, 51 ha of reedy and 49 ha of unused field. There are 4672 ha agricultural and 713 ha non-agricultural fields.

The major part of the inhabitants earns their living with farming: corn, wheat, sunflower, potato, sugar-beats and melon breeding; swine, neat, fowl and horse breeding. The farmers' cooperative founded in 1920 nowadays is replaced by individual farmers. There is no agricultural association in the village, but there are many people letting their larger field worked by others.

The Érmellék is an ancient grape growing area; it is proved by the existence of the numerous wine cellars, which nowadays are mostly unused. Nowadays there are 32 ha of land in the village used as vinery. Unfortunately the lands once used as vineries nowadays are used as plough lands, alike the sometime moorlands.

There is a gasoline extraction in the neighborhood of Che ş ereu; in the neighborhood of Cherechiu there are unexplored thermal-wells.

There are no industrial facilities in the village; the milk-collection is mostly unorganized. There are 8 inhabitants owning artisan license: 6 bricklayers and 2 tradesmen. There are 13 registered firms and 1 family business in the village. In Cheşereu there are 1 transporting firm and 1 agricultural business registered.

In Târguşor a contractor establishes a mushroom-growing business with commercial purposes, which occupies the inhabitants of the village.

There are 9 shops, 6 bars and 2 bakeries in the village.

The infrastructure

The length of the roads and streets is 34 km . There are 3 km blacktopped and 25 km unpaved communal roads. In the village there are 1,5 km blacktopped streets and roads, and 16,3 km unpaved.

The 7 km of service road between Cherechiu and Che ş ereu makes special trouble, Cheşereu being this way the most recluse settlement of the village. The private bus-service plying between Cheşereu and Oradea on each working day, tries to ease the problem.

Târguş or is the only settlement of the village that has its own train station in 2 km distance southward at the beginning of the dinkey-line Secueni   Marghita   Simleu.

The telephone services are not so well developed. In Cherechiu there are 4 institutional (in the parish hall, police and school), 1 public and 3 private telephone lines. In Cheşereu there are 2 institutional (school and doctor's office), 2 public and 6 private telephone lines. In Târguşor there are 2 public and 3 private telephone lines. There is an aerial tower for both two national mobile-phone service companies on the top of the hill from Cherechiu.

The Internet is going to be developed in the near future because fortunately we has won the  Knowledge-Based Economy' project.

The water supply service covers 95 % of the village, but from the 800 houses there are only 400 connected to the network. Besides there are 12 public and 1 artesian well in the village. The sewage disposal is not resolved, and there are places where even the ditch is missing.

Development-plans :

The updating of the service roads of Cheşereu and Târguşor would be important because of the work places, farming and school;
The renewing of the ditching network;
There are made the first steps for the configuration of the sewage dispose

There are not enough businesses, which would be important for the creation of more new working opportunities;
The marketing and conversion of the farm produce;
