One can observe an general agreement that globalization is one of the main challenges for the contemporary human being. This conception depicts the process of passing from the world economy to the one “global” economical system. It replaces the term “internationalization”, hitherto used for describing the strategies of the enterprises. Globalization means qualitative changes and appearance of the new paradigm, wich defines new frames for economies and societies. Globalization is a dynamic process, whose results are difficult to forecast. One of the main reasons is, that this process depends on many phenomena, which are antagonistic on the surface, which interwave and appear simultaneously on the global and the lower, national and regional scale. It radically changes an approach to regional sciences, which presently cannot be based on independent and frontiers-defined national territory. Hitherto way-of-thinking: “national- international” are being replaced by “global-local” relations analysis. The effects of crosscutting of these two dimensions: global and local and their intereactions, lead to creation of the new term: “glocalization”, which underlines the interchangeability and simultaneousness of both the developing process of globalization and the growing meaning of the local development.
