Processes in Transborder Areas – Significant Impact on the Economic Growth

Title variants
Languages of publication
Dynamics and interdependence of socio-economic phenomena in the contemporary world require the appropriate instruments to be developed to monitor them. This becomes especially evident in the case of transborder areas, which are differentiated in terms of the socio-economic potentials, on the one hand, along with a growing gap in the data system for transborder areas, on the other. Therefore, it seems to be essential (especially in countries in transition) to create a coherent research system that collects, processes and disseminates information for such areas. Recognizing these needs, the Polish official statistics has initiated works towards establishing a suitable infrastructure. The results of this research (based on household surveys, border traffic surveys, entrepreneurship surveys, etc.) have shown, rather unexpectedly, that estimates of some items in Balance of Payment (BoP) are being changed. Consequently, they should be taken into account in the calculation of Gross Domestic Product (GDP), as discussed in this article.
