What Next? How the Internalization Process Might Lead to the Dissolution of Veneto's Low-technology Industrial District

By Alessandro Spaventa and Salvatore Monni

Abstract

Since the early '90s Veneto's firms have progressively internationalised their production process. After having described this phenomenon, we discuss the conditions under which it could lead in the medium term to the vanishing of the district of origin and the potential development of an industrial district in the recipient area. To support our case we examine the characteristics, trends and effects of the internationalisation process of the Montebelluna industrial district. We conclude by suggesting the adoption of policy measures to amplify possible positive effects and counter negative consequences.Internationalisation, Clusters, Industrial districts, Delocalisation, Organization of Production
