Abstract

Discussions in this paper are based on arguments from the geography, economic, and management literatures suggesting that exploring the spatial reasons for productivity in Turkey became significantly important after Turkey became a candidate country. The aim of this paper is to complement the findings of the studies on productivity differences in Turkey's manufacturing industry by exploring the spatial determinants of productivity at the regional level. The discussion is based on an econometric analysis for the years between 1980 and 2000. The results suggest that related variety, proximity to core areas, high wages, and capital intensity contribute to regional productivity.
