Abstract

Attempts by Greek governments to attract manufacturing industry to problem regions have been shaped by a large number of development laws. Location policy works principally by influencing the decisions of individual firms. The article examines the relevance of Greek government location policy and the local criteria actually used by firms operating in the food industry. Raw materials were the most important determinant and the results otherwise suggest that the use of financial factors as an instrument of regional policy needs re‐examination.
