MetadataShow full item record
The process of socio-economic transformation in Poland generates many changes both of local and national character. In this situation, the role of the Łódź Province undergoes a steady evolution. It is characterized by a traditional predominance of light industries affected adversely by changes in demand for their products. The report analyzes certain elements characteristic for this region (administrative province) and its role during the period of systemic transformation. Special attention has been paid to specific changes connected with the very nature of a market economy (among others, changes in branch and ownership structure of enterprises, and their restructuring). Characteristic features of these changes include a relatively stabilized position held by the industry in this region and, on the other hand, the growing role of services and the private sector. The report is based on statistical data for the years 1989-1994 provided by the Provincial Statistical Office in Łódź and the Provincial Labour Office, as well as by the Central Statistical Office in Warszawa. The data were helpful when analyzing the economic situation in this region of Poland. It should be noted also that a number of different issues connected with economic transformations of the region are still open. Hence, it would seem advisable to continue the research in this field.
