An analysis of new-tech agglomeration in Beijing : a new industrial district in the making ?
Based on the assumption of the strong embedding of the stable and pure district model, the AA. examine a new-tech agglomeration in Beijing, as a variant of such districts, and explain it with the use of concepts adopted from the industrial districts school. The Beijing case represents an experiment in the conscious public creation of new industrial spaces founded on the spontaneous action of key individuals. Initially it progressed as an embryonic district. The AA. pinpoint the necessity for a developing country to rest its development of industrial districts on self-sustained innovativeness
