Regional Economic Development in Eastern Europe

An Example from Poland


The idea for this paper grew out of a USAID-supported technical assistance project to the State Office for Housing and Urban Development (SOHUD) in Poland. The Office asked for assistance in developing the Communal Credit Program that would be designed to encourage smaller local governments to undertake badly needed investments in communal infrastructure. The broad aim of the investments is improving the quality of life and making these localities more attractive for private investment.
