10:00-12: 0010:30 to 10:45 - Clustering as a mechanism for industry development
Topic Description:
Globalization has led industries to evolve quicker than ever before, with firms that fail to adapt unlikely to survive. South African clothing and textile firms have felt this acutely and have had little choice but to professionalize in terms of management methodologies, value chain models and the adoption of technology. One way to do this relatively quickly, cheaply and in a concerted way that propels the industry forward is through clustering.
