Abstract: The paper aims to identify the resilience of the Pomorskie region in Poland. Economic resilience is defined as the ability of the economy to overcome the negative external disturbances. In a unitary state like Poland the resilience of the region to the crisis results to a high degree from the external macroeconomic factors of the country. However some regional features play an important role in strengthening resilience. Very important factors of the Pomorskie region's resilience is the diversity of economy and open society. State policy as well as regional and local policy may contribute to the region stability.
Keywords: economic resilience, pomorskie region, macroeconomic factors, regional economy structure, state and regional policy
