The article presents the results of a survey conducted in the Mazovian province on the trust of residents in the institutions of public life at the local level. These institutions included local government, schools, police, church and community organizations. The development of the Mazowieckie Voivodeship is fostered by a number of assets, including its location in the center of the country and the presence in the region of a metropolitan city such as Warsaw. Its administrative and political functions, the accumulation of business environment institutions, well-developed social infrastructure and the availability of highly qualified personnel are factors that attract capital and investors.
