Manufacturing location as a strategic decision of a firm

P. 45-60.

The objective of the study is to characterize the tendencies of the change in spatial manufacturing structure of Russian industry during the period of economic recovery (1998-2004), to formulate hypotheses concerning the factors that influenced the decision about manufacturing location / development on this or that territory and to provide data to testify the suggested hypotheses. The analysis introduced below accentuates the study of spatial concentration/ decentralization of manufacturing of certain branches/ branch complexes that can be regarded as reflection of the choice of the firm between the strategies of competition and cooperation, because this dilemma is especially acute on the spatially limited markets.
