Abstract

There are two types of regional development elements those are namely economic and social terms. While both developing and developed countries initially need to establish regional economic infrastructure, the next concern should be given to the social infrastructure. In local regions, the presence of sufficient social infrastructure may hold the number of populations which is the essential condition for a self-sustained regional structure system. In this paper, a consideration is given to the roles played by public sector for coordinating wider-regional sharing of the social infrastructure element. The analysis reveals the fundamental relationship between the wider-regional sharing and the economies of scale. The outcome also addresses potential issues on consumer accessibility by the integration of economic activity among different neighbour regions.
