The cluster development policy aims at increasing industrial competitiveness in areas with high potentials for targeted manufacture bases using advanced technology. Clusters are crucial in linking manufacturers, suppliers, supporting industries, research and academic institutions, and public and private organizations within the cluster areas. Strategic development is supported by government agencies in wide-ranging aspects, including human resources and technological developments, infrastructure development and logistics system, tax incentives and non-tax incentives, financial support, and amendments of rules and regulations to facilitate investment. These measures not only support the cluster development and its competency in the international arena, but also give strategic advantage to investment projects in the cluster areas.
