Description

Recent development experience points to the way business can be the key to a dynamic small business sector, especially where those links are built on high trust co-operative relations.

This book reviews different types of small business network, illustrated by an international selection of case studies, including:

* Chinese family business networks

* ethinic minority business networks

* Japanese and South Korean business group networks

* Taiwan's subcontracting networks

* European industrial districts

Network promotion initiatives in Singapore, New Zealand, Scandinavia and the UK are each discussed to provide a comprehensive comparative assessment of small business networks.
