Mazovian Voivodeship is the most populated and largest voivodeship on the administrative map of Poland.


It is located in the central-eastern part of the country on the Mazovian Lowland and occupies 35,558 km2, which represents 11.4% of Poland’s area. It borders six voivodeships: Łódzkie and Kujawsko-Pomorskie Voivodeships to the west, Warmia and Mazury Voivodeship to the north, Podlaskie and Lubelskie Voivodeships to the east and Świętokrzyskie Voivodeship to the south. Mazovia is inhabited by a population of about 5,242,911 persons (data of the Central Statistical Office (GUS) as of 31 December 2010), which constitutes around 14% of Poland’s population.


According to analyses carried out by the following institutions such as PAIiIZ S.A. (Polish Information and Foreign Investment Agency), Instytut Badań nad Gospodarką Rynkową (Gdańsk Institute for Market Economics), Szkoła Główna Handlowa (Warsaw School of Economics) Mazovian Voivodeship ranks in the top three voivodeships that are most attractive for investment.


Mazovia is the leader of Poland’s transformation. The voivodeship is the top region in terms of the dynamics of economic development and business activities and it attracts the largest volume of foreign investment. Mazovian Voivodeship represents a region in which almost all sectors of industry (with the exception of mining and extractive industries) have been developed. The largest part of the gross domestic product (GDP), which accounts for 21% (21.88%) of the total revenue of the country, is generated in Mazovia. The main sectors include trade and commerce, telecommunications, financial services, insurance, IT, car and petrochemical industries. Warsaw is a place of registration of 43 enterprises from the first one hundred of the largest Polish companies. One fourth of the foreign investors interested in Poland have chosen Mazovia to be the place of registration of their companies.


Warsaw is the main administrative centre that is surrounded by the most developed communes, which are also characterized with by the lowest level of unemployment. The average wage in Mazovia exceeds the national average wage by more than 30 percent. The fact that Mazovia is the region most frequently visited by foreign tourists (about 5 million persons annually, almost 30 percent of the total number of foreigners visiting Poland) is of significant importance for its economy.
