Abstract

In this paper we analyze regional growth in Central and Eastern Europe in the second half of the 1990s, a period in which pronounced disparities between a group of catching-up regions and another group of falling back regions appeared. We aim to identify the factors behind a dynamic growth performance and the weaknesses leading to poor growth and thus investigate the role of structural change, education and innovation as well as geographical factors in a model of regional growth. The key relationships proposed by this model are then estimated with empirical data for the period 1995-2000 using spatial econometric tools.
