  • Majocchi Antonio

    (Department of Economics, University of Insubria, Italy)

The case studies show how small firms tend to replicate, on an international scale, the relationships developed in the source districts, thus developing international networks that overcome the classifical hurdles to growth mainly affect small firms.
