Support for APL's Competitiveness in Bahia and San Paulo States

The objective of this Technical Cooperation is to support the design of APLs strengthening projects in the states of São Paulo and Bahia to define the necessary actions for a successful intervention. Both states have strategic development plans that reflect promotion of competitiveness of small and micro enterprises grouped in APLs. Within this context, those APLs with higher success potential have been identified and there have been several interventions to support these groups. Nevertheless, the state governments require support in the definition and validation of the specific actions to do in each Project. In addition, the process that will be supported with this technical cooperation will enrich the operational capacity of SEBRAE and of the executing agencies that will work with APLs (clusters). The loans for the aforementiones projects are included in the Bank's Program for 2005 for US$10 million each. These projects are on an initial preparation stage and aim to support productive development and competitiveness of APLs in the participating states and to promote public-private institutional capacity for new intervention mechanisms that allow the increase in the collectivce efficiency of clusters.
