Industrial Clusters and Networks: Case Studies of SME Growth and Innovation

Title Industrial Clusters and Networks: Case Studies of SME Growth and Innovation
Abstract This paper reviews some success stories of SME development in developing countries. What distinguishes these cases, and the framework of the paper, is that these success stories relate not to individual enterprises but to the collectivity of SMEs. The paper explores how clustering and networking can enhance economic growth and spur technical progress in SMEs. Each of the five case studies can be read as a stand-alone section. The final section of the paper draws together some of the common findings from the individual studies and offers appropriate policy recommendations.
