This paper examines the phenomenon of ‘survival clusters’ or groups of small- and mediumsized firms in developing countries, formed to stimulate growth. Adopting a ‘system’ approach in addition to a ‘stages’ approach, the author analyses data from two SME clusters in Central America as Case Studies. Policy recommendations are made.
