The Impact of State and Foreign Ownership on Post-Transition Industrial Concentration: The Case of Polish Manufacturing

By Kevin Amess and Barbara M. Roberts


This paper reports an analysis of the determinants of the level and changes in Polish industrial concentration in the early post-transition era. The empirical evidence is based on a panel of 144 Polish manufacturing industries over the period 1989-1993. The results suggest that both state and foreign ownership have a significant impact on industry concentration and this relationship is U-shaped. Minimum efficient scale is found to be the only other factor to impact on industry concentration
