BURSZTYN JAKO SUROWIEC STRATEGICZNY

Abstract


AMBER AS A STRATEGIC RAW MATERIAL

Abstract. The importance and the role of minerals in the economy of a country or the world is manifested by the use of the following terms: scarce mineral, critical mineral, and strategic mineral. Validity of the raw material in the economic processes and the knowledge about the sources of its acquisition, access barriers, and the shaping of prices on the domestic and international market allow developing a strategy for action. The strategy must take into account the objective of the action, time horizon, kind of the instruments needed to apply, and scope of international cooperation. The importance of the raw material for the country is not only the volume of turnover and volume of production obtained thanks to its application. This also means its importance for historical, cultural and social reasons, which is the case with amber. The author presents arguments in favour of both considering amber in Poland as a raw material of strategic importance and the necessity for introducing effective instruments to ensure its further extraction and use.
