Worcester County lies at the center of Massachusetts and largely defines the Commonwealth's Central Region. Economic flows here have traditionally run north and south along the Blackstone River Valley - a natural link connecting the city of Worcester to Providence, Rhode Island. The development of new knowledge-based industries over the past decade, however, has enhanced the region's ties to the east, and especially to the Greater Boston economy.
