Industrial clusters in Silicon Valley, Hsinchu Park, and northern
Italy, and in the vicinity of Cambridge, U.K., have captured the
imagination of policymakers, researchers, city planners and business
people. Where clusters take root, they can generate valuable
spillovers, promote innovation, and create the critical industrial mass
for sustained growth. For cities such as Kitakyushu, Japan, that are
faced with the erosion of their traditional industrial base and are
threatened by economic decline, creating a cluster that would reverse
the downward trends is enormously attractive.
Growing Industrial Clusters in Asia offers practical guidance
on the nature of clusters and the likely efficacy of measures that
could help build a cluster. It draws on the experience of both
established dynamic clusters and newly emerging ones that show
considerable promise. The insights that result from its anlaysis will
be of particular interest to policy makers, urban planners, business
people, and researchers.
