International competitiveness of the Polish wood industry from the mesoeconomic perspective

Abstract
The competitiveness of the Polish forest and wood industry, in particular the wood market itself, is determined by many factors which are shaping – to a various extent – its basic measure, i.e. a share of the industry or each of its sectors in the open international market. Due to a significant share of the wood industry in the generation of Poland's GDP, constant measurement and verification of this sector's competitiveness, both ex-ante and ex-post, seem to be of extreme importance. Next to a traditional research model, it is considered important and practical to include a new approach which takes into account the heritage of economic sciences, in particular one of new disciplines, i.e. mesoeconomics. A discussion on the mesoeconomic approach against the traditional model justifies the search for new analytic methods that would enable both a diagnosis of industry's competitiveness in international markets, including the emerging ones, as well as creation of efficient tools of the economic policy in this scope.
