Local Productive Systems, while not new, are being heralded by many as a solution to the crisis facing the traditional industrial structures. As unemployment soars, these groupings of firms have proved to be remarkably successful in retaining and increasing their share of employment. Within many Member countries, there are innovative regions in which firms have learned to benefit from the mutual gains made possible by dense vertical and horizontal linkages. The question facing scholars and policy makers is whether these groupings reflect a new and valuable tool for creating employment or alternatively whether they reflect unique social and economic conditions in a given area. This publication seeks to confront these issues by considering networking and clustering experiences in a wide range of countries both inside and outside the OECD area. Through these case studies, it tries to assess and evaluate the possibilities for successfully copying this experience elsewhere.
