Abstract

In order to understand the positive role that regional governments can play in facilitating the innovative capacity of its industries, this paper analyses the 25-year history of the Tasmanian government’s interaction with the Tasmanian Light Shipbuilding Industry. The research findings indicate that unlike governments of major economies, regional governments play a central and necessarily intrusive role in the facilitation of an industry’s innovative capacity, and that this role is necessarily changeable over its life cycle. This paper provides a discussion of the policy implications, and presents a reconceptualisation of Porter’s Diamond Factor Model for policy makers in regional economic settings.
