CLUSTER APPROACH TO ORGANIZATION OF INDUSTRIAL
COOPERATION AND POSSIBLE OPTIONS WITHIN THE REGION
Introduction: In conditions of increasing
competition in national markets for goods, labour and capital, the economic
priority for Ukrainian regions is the increase of competitiveness of regional
economies. The importance of theoretical concepts which allow for justifying
and implementation of effective forms of territorial organization of economy
and competitive strategies of socio-economic development of the regions is also
growing. Aims and objectives:
Determining the advantages of cluster organization of production interaction
and analysis of variability of modern cluster policy within the region. Methods: Logical and comparative analyses,
method of grouping. Results:
Benefits of cluster organization of production interaction have been determined
and analysis of variability of modern cluster policy within the region has been
carried out. Conclusions. Basing on
the analysis, we can conclude that the regional cluster policy is not a new
form of activity in the sphere of economy, but a new way of organization of the
microeconomic policies in the region concerning the new objects of economic
infrastructure – spatial clusters. Considering rational cluster policy we
should take into account that the process of its formation in the region is a
difficult task whose development and implementation requires a scientific
approach. Its success depends on many factors and conditions, and the central
place here belongs to scientific principles of selection of variants of cluster
policy, substantiating its prospects and feasibility of establishing different
clusters of industrial associations.
