Budapest and its agglomeration zone play an important role in creating and spreading private ventures. The introductory part of the study refers the districts of Budapest and the settlements of the fringe area into categories according to their favourable or infavourable position in the process of spreading of private ventures. The authors analyse the regional distribution of private ventures according to their quality and the volume of basis capital. (Data are from the Catalogue of Firms in Hungary, 1992). The regional division and relative density of private ventures of different type shows remarkable differences. There are concentric zones on the Pest side while the settlement of fringe area on the Buda side show an irregular pattern. There is a correlation between the regional spread of private ventures and the previous workplace supply of the district and of the suburban settlements. This phenomenon marks that the development of market economy has turned back the process of the relative decentralisation of workplaces. Regional division of private firms within the agglomeration zone display a very close correlation and almost functional-like relationship with the rate of the highly educated population. The highly qualified labour force has become a key factor in the conversion process from centrally planned economy to market economy, as for the organisational innovation process. An increasing Budapest-province polarity and growing disparities inside the agglomeration zone can be forecast. -from English summary
