The study is mainly focussed on the analysis of real convergence process in EU and inside of each of three conventional groups of countries (western, southern, and eastern). Moreover, the structural convergence (evaluated by the shares of main sectors of economy in total employment) and regional convergence (inside of each country) are analysed. Generally, dynamics of the estimated specific indicators of convergence after 2000 shows a strong real and structural convergence, both at the level of EU and inside of each groups of countries. However, the study demonstrated a more complex process in case of the regional convergence.
