The resurgence of interest in the spatial location and organization of economic activity generated by the development of new economic geography has once again directed attention to the way in which the regions of a national economy interact. Over the last three decades, production systems have become more fragmented, with different phases in the production system often allocated to different locations in space. As a result, interregional and international trade flows have been growing at rates in excess of the corresponding rates of growth of gross regional or national domestic product.
