The "Finnish way" of economic growth has proven successful over the past decade, and has promoted relatively balanced development across the country.

Poland has a large window of opportunity for implementing ambitious regional development policies. Although the country has managed to maintain high growth levels since the mid-1990s, with the second-best performance in the OECD in 2006-07, territorial disparities are persistent and rising, especially between large urban areas and rural ones. Poland has some of the OECD area's greatest territorial disparities in terms of GDP per capita. Regional development policies are currently high on the political agenda, owing to strong support from EU funds, solid political commitment and the increased r

The performance of Chilean regions varies significantly and regional disparities in GDP per capita are very high compared to those in OECD countries. Chilean regions have thus far so not fully utilised their assets and reached their potential for growth.   This report recommends moving towards a territorial approach to development in Chile in order to better adapt public management to the different opportunities and needs

This plan helped shift the focus to the greater “Mesoamerican region” (MAR), which includes the seven Central American countries plus the nine southeastern states of Mexico. In this context, the OECD Territorial Review of the Mesoamerican Region marks two major firsts: a comprehensive regional development study of the entire Mesoamerican region and the OECD’s first ever multi-national territorial review. This review recognizes that eco
