    OECD Publishing 2011; US$ 63.00

    Despite its relatively small size, Slovenia is a good illustration of the potential of regional development policy.

    The Valencian Central Districts, composed of 155 municipalities belonging to two different provinces in the region of Valencia, produce large quantities of Spanish textiles, toys, and tourism services.

  • OECD Territorial Reviews - Luxembourgby OECD Publishing

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2008; US$ 56.00

    In the short span of just a few decades, Luxembourg has moved from a steel-based economy to one more broadly based on financial services.  But being nestled between three other countries, each with their own infrastructure and development issues presents challenges.  This review examines the economic trends and disparities within the region,... more...

  • OECD Territorial Reviews Madrid, Spainby OECD Publishing

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2007; US$ 56.00

    Madrid has experienced impressive dynamic economic growth in recent years, making the best of the positive business cycle in Spain.

    OECD Publishing 2015; US$ 45.00

    OECD Publishing 2015; US$ 105.00

    Regional development policy is a priority of Colombia’s government.

  • OECD Territorial Reviews Yucatan, Mexicoby OECD Publishing

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2007; US$ 56.00

    The Mexican state of Yucatán, with its strategically important location near the United States, Central America and the Caribbean, is one of the most dynamic regions in the OECD. Yucatán is also a land of contrasts. It is a lagging but growing region, offering a high quality of life and vast natural resources, yet suffering from problems... more...

  • OECD Urban Policy Reviews: Mexico 2015by OECD Publishing

    OECD Publishing 2015; US$ 147.00

    In parallel to a sweeping structural reform agenda, Mexico announced in 2013 a new approach to housing and urban policy. Calling for a more explicit qualitative focus on housing and the urban environment, the policy shift is a welcome development. Mexico urbanised more rapidly than most OECD countries in the past half-century, in part as a result of... more...
