Silicon Saxony - processes of transformation in the last fifteen years

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The eastern part of Germany functions in the European mentality as a problem area in which it is possible to observe a number of negative social and economic processes (depopulation, poverty, unemployment). Silicon Saxony is currently beginning to change the traditional image it has had hitherto. The economic development of Saxony is correlated with that of the whole transport system, including airports and transport via inland waterways, with valuable features of the natural landscapes and with the development of education and the tradition of innovation. Those opportunities are important factors underpinning the location of high-tech industries. Numerous examples confirm the legitimacy of the aforementioned new name. Saxony is trying to join central regions of Europe. - (BJ)
