La costruzione dell'ambiente istituzionale come fattore di competitività per l'industria mobiliera di Jalisco
AbstractThe competitiveness of local productive systems must include the participation of ?rms, and public and private institutions to build a system of interrelation, as well as the formation of regulatory frames, systems of incentives and instruments of support, that make possible the processes of learning and innovation. This analysis considers the furniture industry in Jalisco as a local productive system and discusses the importance of the institutional environment and its construction, in three cores: government agencies and related industrial and promotion policies, business associations and educational institutions. The main conclusion made is that, although the action of institutional actors has been a principal factor in the improvement of the furniture industry’s performance, the heterogeneity of the ?rms’ composition hinders the attainment of policy tools for productive development. The evidence is provided by the separation between a minority of ?rms that shares institutional support and actions of learning and innovation, and another part of them that does not follow this dynamic and whose strategies concentrate on survival.
