Abstract

More than half of the projected lifespan of the EFTA Industrial Development Fund (IDF) for Portugal has now been completed, although the spatial efficacy of help available to Portuguese industry through this medium has met with a variable level of success. The main argument shows that, whilst overall management of the fund continues to be spatially and sectorally biased in favour of those companies in regions least in need, there does appear to be a fresh potential for industrial development in some of the more disadvantaged areas of Portugal. A series of recommendations points to improved advertising for the IDF so as to ensure that recent improvements continue and to allow for the Fund's regional development potential to be realised.
