Publisher Description

Introduction From an economic point of view, insular location is commonly seen as a structural handicap, particularly for the manufacturing industry (e.g. CPMR, 2000). Moreover, in most regions around the world, the number of jobs in agriculture and fisheries is shrinking; yet, tourism, recreation and other service businesses are not always expanding fast enough to fully recover the loss of year-round jobs. Therefore, building up and sustaining a competitive manufacturing sector is very important for the sustainability of island communities. These trends are typical for the two island counties of Estonia: Saaremaa and Hiiumaa. An analysis of the build-up of manufacturing capacity in these two island territories is further complicated by their transition from a former command economy.
