From Ascribed to Earned Trust in Exporting Clusters

Published on 1 January 1999

This paper is concerned with the role of trust in export manufacturing.

It asks how trust has developed in two industrial clusters which are located in developing countries and export most of their output to North America and Europe. The main conclusion is that trust was based initially on socio-cultural ties between clustered firms and later on conscious investments in inter-firm relationships.
