Abstract

As theoretical studies on industrial clusters have progressed, many researchers have focused on identifying clusters in various regions in different national economies. The emphasis has generally been to identify potential clusters, upon which a policy of sustainable development can be formulated. This paper aims to provide a basis to enable the identification of the regional clusters in Turkey. Using manufacturing industry data for years 1995 and 2000, regional high points of the Aegean Region have been identified by calculating shares of regional employment and concentration ratio. Then the identified industries have been focused upon to provide an initial framework to identify Aegean Region’s clusters.
