Border regions are regarded as peripheral areas. In the European Union, cross-border cooperation has become an important tool used for overcoming peripherality and regional disparities.
The border regions, for years treated as peripheral and declining, are currently becoming areas of a more and more robust economic growth. The article presents selected results of research conducted in the Polish western border regions. International cross-border and interregional cooperation is an important factor in the development of regions divided by a border. It is an element which changes the perception of the border. It becomes a stimulus to enter into a social and economic cooperation.
An important part of cross-border contacts is the increase in border traffic and the development of border trade. The aim of this article is to present selected issues.
