Urban Dipoles in Greece: Economic Development Opportunities for Larissa-Volos Dipole in Thessaly Region
AbstractThe article attempts to illustrate the significance of the existence of co-operation and in tandem development of an urban dipole, as well as the impact of such a dipole development on each of the two cities and on the greater region they belong. For this reason, the article focuses on a specific case of two medium size cities in Greece, Larissa and Volos, which activate in the same region by taking development actions complementary to one another. The aim of the article is to define the prospects for economic development of this dipole and examine its dynamic in relation to other cities in Greece, by using original data derived by a recent empirical research conducted among foreign firms of the region which have established in the dipole area the last 15 years.
