The transition from a centrally planned lo a market economy produces many changes of both local and national character. In the present systemic transformations in Poland, the role of the Lodz Administrative Province undergoes an evolution. It calls for structural changes in the economy aimed to increasing its effectiveness and adapting it to new market conditions. This article presents structural transformations in the economy of the Lodz Province, as well as concepts of restructuring it. The author points at the main factors of transformations and analyzes changes in the sectorial branch structure (employment and sales) and in the ownership structure. The main characteristics of these transformations include a relatively stabilized position held by industry within this region and a growing role of services. An interresling phenomenon is also a rapid growth of employment in the private sector. I t should be noted here that the process of structural transformations is by its very nature a long-term phenomenon and at the present time it is in its continuation phase.
