Developing countries and incipient industrialization: a case study of enterprise clustering and inter-firm relations in small and medium-scale manufacturing industries in Lobatse, Botswana

J Nakizito, MBK Darkoh

Abstract


Botswana's small and large towns offer good examples of incipient industrialization and enterprise clustering in a developing economy. Using data from Lobatse, a small industrial centre in Botswana, this brief paper shows that clustering in developing countries does not necessarily induce high inter-firm relationships as is the case in industrialized countries. Relations are limited among firms within clusters
