Abstract

In this Policy Review Section Neil Marshall and John Bachtler explore the role of the service sector in regional policy within the member states of the European Community focusing in particular on the role of the public sector and the application of financial incentives and controls. They conclude that greater attention needs to be given to the relationships with national industrial and technological policies, that there is considerable scope to employ public services, that regional policy incentives should be tailored more closely to the needs of service enterprises and that there is a case for decentralized policy delivery. In the second article S. J. Syrett examines the implications for Portugal of the introduction of a programme of local economic initiatives which has been inspired in large measure by the OECD and European Community's own Local Employment Initiatives programmes. Syrett stresses the dangers of the international transference of policy initiatives without reference to the political framework within which they were devised and without them being tailored to the particular circumstances of the country concerned.
