Poland current voivodeships (provinces) are largely based on the country historic regions, whereas those of the past two decades (to 1998) had been centred on and named for individual cities. The new units range in area from less than 10,000 square kilometres (3,900 sq mi) for Opole Voivodeship to more than 35,000 square kilometres (14,000 sq mi) for Masovian Voivodeship as its shown in Poland country map. Administrative authority at voivodeship level is shared between a government-appointed voivode (governor), an elected regional assembly (sejmik) and an executive elected by that assembly.
Present day Poland is a country with great agricultural prospects; there are over two million private farms in the country, and Poland is the leading producer in Europe of potatoes and rye and is one of the world largest producers of sugar beets and triticale as its mentioned in Poland country map. This has led Poland to be described on occasion as the future 'bread basket of the European Union'.
Poland is recognised as a regional economic power within Central Europe, possessing nearly 40 percent of the 500 biggest companies in the region (by revenues) as you can see in Poland country map. Poland was the only member of the EU to avoid the recession of the late 2000s (decade), a testament to the Polish economy stability. The country most competitive firms are components of the WIG20 which is traded on the Warsaw Stock Exchange.
