Published in: Regional Science Policy and Practice
Abstract: “Location,” “Location,” “Location” determine the policy dynamics of industrial development in today's globalized world. These words also define a spatial unit with resources, labour, and proximity to the consumer base. The advent of information and communication technologies (ICTs) and transportation networks have increased the concentration of industries at a particular location in this globalized world. This paper discusses two aspects of regional development, first the apprehensions in understanding location policy for industrial development. Second, the choice of location of India in providing the skilled labour force for knowledge-based software services industry and the consequent urban regional dynamics in the spatial growth of the Bangalore metropolitan region (BMR). © 2019 The Author(s).
