After invention firms dace a crucial choice between reaching distant markets by export or plant delocation. The paper shows how firms, in the attempt to circumvent the obstacles to good s and plant mobility, overlook the impact of their decisions on innovation activities inside the district thus generating a suboptimal mix of export and delocation.
