In the post-communist countries the phenomenon of relocation has only become common recently. The main purposes of the study are thus to demonstrate the major characteristics of relocation to and from Hungarian industry and to reveal its spatial impacts, i.e. the ways in which relocation has affected the post-communist spatial pattern formed for industry in the 1990s. The study also examines how relocation and reorganization of production were achieved at a transnational company (Flextronics), as well as the spatial and structural consequences of the changes. Of all the post-communist countries, Hungary forms one of the most important targets for relocation due to its favourable geographical location. In spite of this, the relocation noted to date has not been very intensive, and has not therefore affected the new spatial pattern of industry much either. In the long run, however, relocation can become more intensive and that can lead to relevant changes in the spatial pattern displayed by Hungarian industry.
