Methodology for Identification of Competitive Industrial Clusters



In this chapter considered methodology for identification of competitive industrial clusters. The modern development of Kazakhstan has a distinct regional context, occurs the need of conducting clustering of republics regions by the degree of similarity in economic development in order to develop effective territorial policy, that considers the differences of regional groups (regional clusters) and aimed to the development not only separate regions but also the whole territory of the country. The results of explorings in this chapter have science-based advisory character by the methods of regions economic management based on theoretical and methodological basis of exploring as the works of classics of economic science, modern science works of foreign and domestic economic scientists and the experts on the cluster theory, system analysis and the theory of managing of economic systems.
