So far, Central Poland cannot be said to be an explicitly defined spatial concept, although multifarious historical, socio-economic and natural determinants outline in the middle of the present Poland’s territory an area, which is clearly delimited in the administrative sense indeed, but poorly coherent internally while externally evidently contrasting with the surrounding counties. Enclosing within its boundaries two large urban and industrial agglomerations of Warsaw and Łódź, some industrial districts and nuclei - Central Poland constitutes an especially absorptive outlet for foodstuffs turned out in the local agriculture and food-processing plants as well. Market linkages of long tradition, systematically deepened by current co-operation between urban settlement network and rural productive areas, form an increasingly better outlined food and agriculture complex, both in spatial and structural respects. Just this kind of links makes one of specific features enabling Central Poland to be looked upon as an economic region.
