The Impact of Privatization with Foreign Involvement on the Restructuring Process of the Sugar Industry in Poland


Cezary Iwan

This study examines the impact of privatization on the restructuring process of the sugar industry in Poland up to 2005. It analyzes and evaluates the types and effects of restructuring activities introduced by foreign investors at sugar factories taken over in Poland (and at their raw material base), comparing these with the activities of the factories that remain in the hands of the state. Apart from its core function of providing an answer to the main research question, this book constitutes a compendium of information on the evolution of the Polish sugar industry since 1945, in particular on the course of ownership transformations as well as the causes, direction and scope of restructuring processes in this sector between 1990 and 2004.
Contents: Sugar industry – Restructuring – Privatization – Poland.
