Abstract

During last years, a central issue of theory debate and economicpolicy is clearly manufacture clusters and the local capabilities which take part,promote and condition its competitiveness. This article analyzes two local experiencesin Argentina —the Agricultural Machinery District and Las Parejas Cluster—connecting topics such as innovation, learning and other difficulties (endogenousand exogenous), which disturb the normal cluster operations of localindustrialized agglomerations. From this perspective, innovation processes, firmrelationships and institutional network actions are analyzed. This study concludeswith some associations which identify similar local trajectories from others peripheryexperiences.
