Abstract:

The Polish clothing industry will be able to gain competitive advantage in the European market by replacing labour intensive technologies with knowledge intensive solutions. However, this process will be possible, when many barriers stemming from the financial condition of many firms are lifted. Investment in new technology, modern machinery, recruitment of a high-skilled workforce and contracts for external research services require substantial financial outlays. A lack of working capital is the main barrier impeding the development of the Polish clothing industry.
