Abstract

This paper argues that most policy initiatives in this area have been underlain by a conceptual model which assumes that advanced infrastructure and services will contribute to job creation through improving the competitiveness of existing regional firms, through enhancing access to core markets. On the basis of the case study, employment growth is in reality more likely to result from inward investment (exogenous firms) than through growth in indigenous firms
