The economy is divided into 3 main sectors - agriculture, industry and services. In Poland, as in most places in the world, agriculture developed first. From the 19th century on, industry began to develop on a large scale. After World War II, the communist authorities based our economy on heavy industry, based on the extraction of hard coal in Upper Silesia. Only after the breakthrough of 1989, when we switched to a free market economy, services could begin to develop with full force - trade, transport, telecommunications, banking, education, tourism, environmental protection and many others.
Currently, services dominate in Poland. The leader is Wholesale and retail trade, transport, accommodation and the food industry. Industry is in second place, and public administration, national defense, education, health care and social activities are third. The following positions are occupied by: Professional, scientific and technical activities, Construction and Real Estate.
In Poland, there is a three-tier administrative division into 16 provinces, 379 counties and 2,478 communes.
State administration is divided into government administration and local government administration. Government administration is a group of administrative bodies headed by the Council of Ministers. Local government administration is the local and regional administration.
