  • Stavros Kalogiannidis


Purpose: This research paper has been compiled from the articles and journals of various scholars. The elements and factors, which affected the plant closure and its impact on the economical fields, are analyzed at depth. Design/Methodology/Approach: The economic condition based on geographical scenario along with the case study on the Limestone Coast region of South Australia is vividly discussed. In other words, the paper has thrown down an in-depth analysis of the Pine plantations and Plan for the acceleration of electrical as well as industrial allocations and the role of gas on the Limestone Coast that had generated premium wine. Findings: There were four scenarios planned prior to proceeding with the work as well. At the same time, it also found different stakeholders involved in agricultural practices as well. Hence, it has focussed on the overall mission of the company. Practical Implications: The study had emphasized the methods and material of qualitative that had dealt with the case study of the Lime industry as well. Originality/value: This study contributes by supporting that conceptual, strategic, and technical competencies have a significant relationship with competitive intelligence and is achievable to be used by goverments in region and local economies.
