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.
