Development processes occur within a wider geographical area than local government, and in some cases encompass a broader scope than provincial or national governments. Thus substantial inter-governmental co-operation and public-private partnership are needed. This book identifies how development agencies and companies work, what they do and what constitutes success and value added. It explores international practices in a variety of locations and contexts, and defines both the success factors and the challenges associated with economic development agencies and companies.

Jobs-rich Growth in Asia discusses some of the most pressing issues that countries in Southeast Asia are facing in regard to boosting local employment and skills development while advancing social protection strategies in emerging, fast-growing labour markets. A joint OECD/ILO initiative, this book analyses local approaches in Asia to modernise labour markets and skills strategies and shows how local recovery is taking place through a combination of policy measures on employment creation, skills development and social protection.

Rares sont les études qui ont analysé de façon systématique la corrélation entre la création d’entreprises et le développement économique local – cependant ceci est un souci universel pour  les administrations locales et centrales. Ce rapport examine les principaux mécanismes par lesquels la création et le développement d'entreprises peuvent avoir des retombées sur l’économie locale. Il présente des recommandations détaillées à l’intention des pouvoirs publics portant sur trois grands domaines : stratégie, finance et conception des programmes.

Government intervenes in a myriad of ways at the local level, and rarely are these interventions coordinated effectively. In the context of the economic recovery and public budget cuts, policy silos and fragmented short-term policy interventions have become luxuries that our economies can no longer afford. Such divisions are often taken for granted, blamed on historical working relationships ("it has always been like that") and organizational cultures ("they don't work like we do"). However these divisions come at a cost. This book provides concrete advice to policy makers at both national and
