Clusters for Competitiveness: A Practical Guide & Policy Implications for Developing Cluster Initiatives
This report illustrates the complementary advantages of applying cluster analysis to the established economy-wide analysis that is traditionally used in determining export competitiveness. Written in a non-technical perspective, this report provides an introduction to the cluster-based approach to competitiveness, 10 core tools used in cluster initiatives, discussion on the key stages involved in initiating cluster analysis, and finally discussion on the policy implications of a cluster-based approach. Also included is an annex of resource materials.
