Summary Developing countries face a policy dilemma. After the economic liberalization process, many sectors are succumbing to new competitive pressures. The dilemma concerns helping firms to compete in the new globalized context without repeating the mistakes of the old industrial policies. Responding to this challenge, the literature on flexible specialization emphasizes interfirm cooperation, joint public-private initiatives and locally based public policies as the key tools to generate dynamic production systems (DPSs). This book analyzes two such DPSs in Argentina and Chile, the dairy and the fresh fruit sectors respectively, focusing on the public policies and business strategies that explain their dynamism.
