Cluster development activity during the recent period
One of the main objectives of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Pécs-Baranya is to raise awareness of actors of the economy: the existence and activity of clusters is a breakout point, almost the only way to survive in the Central European region.
Over the past decades companies in Hungary have favored cluster formation however there is much uncertainty once a cluster is established. There is no connection between the different participants, a common strategy has not been achieved, resources are inappropriate as they do not know about the existing opportunities.
In recent years CCIPB have been actively involved in a number of cluster development projects in order to better position start-up and emerging clusters within the county and the region. The success of this initiative shows that methods, best practices developed here have won recognition among project partners from various EU countries. Further clarification is needed about the way and form of cooperation with national cluster policy and development organizations, regional actors.
