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

No 703, Working Papers from CREI Università degli Studi Roma Tre

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.
