OECD: Invest in the tail

Janne Antikainen ran an international regional development seminar in Nordregio, Stockholm. The seminar focused on smart, sustainable and inclusive growth and it laid basis for the Nordic countries to seek strategic guidelines or regional development after 2013. All the presentation material may be seen at http://www.nordregio.se/System/News-on-hold/Smart-sustainable-and-inclusive-regions/. The pearl of all interesting presentations was ”Promoting Growth in All Regions” by José Enrique Garcilazo of OECD (click link below). OECD’s main message on growth: 2/3 of the growth comes from smaller towns instead of big citites, therefore development investments should also be directed to this group.
