Industrial policy, politics and state capacity building

Year: 2010
Author: Morris, Mike

This is a discussion note rather than a polished paper. I have kept references down to a minimum. It is written with the intent of setting out some of the basic issues and is meant to stimulate debate and discussion around the political issues of industrial policy. It draws heavily on my personal experience in formulating and implementing industrial strategies in South Africa in two areas: a) at a regional level with the Western Cape government and b) and at a national level through attempting to organise firms in the various components of the clothing and textile value chain and negotiate a sector policy on their behalf with national government.
