Modes, Rhythms, and Perspectives in the Internationalization of the Polish Economy and Firms

This paper identifies and clarifies the modes and rhythms in the internationalization of Polish firms that make this process feasible thanks to the position achieved by the Polish economy coupled with its access to the European Union.

Unesco – International Relations and Cooperation : Conference on March 2009

The actors in the crisis are well known: banks and financial institutions had in 1929 already been involved in and caused quite a stir.

Sustainability within tourism activity needs to introduce links among several good strategic initiatives but  which are only focused on some parts of a big problem and through a partitioned manner. We need to  introduce sustainability in tourism but we  also need  to create locally global sustainability through tourism.

Environmental problems but also economic role and cultural impacts of tourism for their destinations areas must not have to be ignored. They produce  “take back” effects on global sustainability.A good way requires to set up a civic and global network of cooperation among the different actors of the tourism sector. Such network offers a sustainable mode of regulation concerning the activities of tourism sector, situated between the market and the state, between competition and hierarchy, between rivalry and conciliation hurting liberty. Tourism and traveler then become ambassadors and actors of local sustainable development. Read more
