This paper investigates patterns of manufacturing location in the context of increased economic integration in European Union's accession countries. Using regional data for the period 1990-1999, we identify and compare patterns and determinants of manufacturing location in five countries: Bulgaria, Estonia, Hungary, Romania and Slovenia. Our research results indicate that factor endowments and geographic proximity to large markets determine the location of manufacturing in the analyzed countries.
