Abstract

The article focuses on import of intermediate and capital goods and its impact on economic performance of manufacturing enterprises from Lodz Voivodeship. The first selection outlines the New New Trade Theory postulates about relation between firms productivity and its engagement in import. One of them is learning-by-importing hypothesis (LBI). The second section presents results of CAWI research, which applied to economic efficiency of intermediate and capital goods importers form Lodz region and their ability to learn. Those results indicate premises for good perspectives for the occurrence of LBI effect.
