Imprese cinesi nel distretto di Carpi
AbstractThe evolution of the knitwear and clothing district of Carpi (Italy) represents an emblematic case of transformations induced by external changes linked with the international competitive context and internal ones regarding the local socio-economic structure. The increasing international competition compels the firms of the district to a repositioning towards market segments with greater added value and to a shifting of production to lower-cost foreign countries. At the same time, the labour shortage at local level creates the conditions for immigration of Chinese workers who set up subcontracting firms in the district, specialising in the more labour-intensive production stages. The spread of Chinese subcontractors is disruptive of the district regulations and fuels internal competition with native subcontractors, which addes to the external competition caused by the delocalisation of production to foreign countries.
