Title: The Durban Auto Cluster
Global Competition, Collective Efficiency, and Local Development
Author: Lorentzen, Jochen; Robbins, Glen; Barnes, Justin
Abstract: The paper describes the formation of the Durban Auto Cluster in the context of trade liberalization. It argues that the improvement of operational competitiveness of firms in the cluster is prominently due to joint action. It tests this proposition by comparing the gains from cluster activities in the areas of supplier development, human resource development, logistics, and benchmarking, and by contrasting the impact of joint action against a host of other variables, notably international competition and technical assistance by foreign partners.
