Warianty tytułu
Języki publikacji
The paper consists of eight parts. Section 1 is this introduction. Section 2 explains the concept of income convergence in the light of Solow's model of economic growth. Section 3 indicates the data used and their transformation. The results on income convergence within the group are presented in Section 4. Section 5 brings the results on their cyclical convergence. Section 6 deals with the convergence of CEE countries towards the EU. Section 7 analyses trade links between CEE countries and the EU, which are essential in any reasoning about economic convergence. Section 8 presents main conclusions. (fragment of text)
