The Industrial Cluster Plan of the Japanese government and the realities of regional economies in Japan

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The paper introduces a new policy of the Japanese government for the resurgence of regional economies and reexamines its theory and realities (Industrial Cluster Plan). The advocators of this plan consider it possible to set up a region artificially. A region cannot, however, be created in such a way, but is a historical construct. Accumulated social capital is important for the recognition of a region. The social capital is decisive for collaborative undertakings among entrepreneurs. This is exemplified by the case of the area along Chuo Freeway. - (IfL)
