Summary/Abstract: This is a review and conceptual paper. The aim of the paper is to identify the main features of economic network. The main problem of the conceptualization is its complex charakter and plurality of interrelating ties. The research was conducted on the base of the domestic and foreign subject literature and the descriptive and comparative analysis. The specification of the economic network notion has been based on the theory of economy. The main premise is to specify the economic network theory among other regulators and performance modes of the economy and show the specific nature of the concept. Rationalising the theoretical categories of economic network, the assumptions have been made on the base of which the assessment of its importance in the modern economy is possible to be made. The value added of the paper is the identification of the specific features of the economic network as the basic performance mode of the network economy as well as the indication of the main differences between economic network and other modes of performance in the economy. This paper is organised in the three parts. In the first part, the aims of economic network have been discussed. In the second part, the economic network has been compared with other modes of economic performance. In the last part, the most important premises of the economic network theory have been discussed.
