TAILIEUCHUNG - Emerging Epistemic Landscapes: Knowledge Clusters in Ho Chi Minh City and the Mekong Delta
Vietnam is embarking on a path towards a knowledge-based economy in which the emergence of knowledge clusters in Ho Chi Minh City and the Mekong Delta are playing a decisive role. As our paper suggests, clustering appears to have a positive effect not only on the increase of knowledge output, but also on the economic growth of these regions. Using a GIS-based mapping method, we can identify two major knowledge clusters – Ho Chi Minh City and Can Tho City. Both areas create hubs in the south of Vietnam, with favourable conditions for knowledge production and a large pool of skilled people and an advanced infrastructure | ZEF Working Paper Series 48 Bonn 2009 Center for Development Research Hans-Dieter Evers Tatjana Bauer Emerging Epistemic Landscapes Knowledge Clusters in Ho Chi Minh City and the Mekong Delta Department of Political and Cultural Change WISDOM Project Universitätbonn Zentrum für Entwicklungsforschung Center for Development Research ISSN 1864-6638 ZEF Working Paper Series ISSN 1864-6638 Department of Political and Cultural Change Center for Development Research University of Bonn Editors .
