Spatial Distribution of Economic Activities, Growth Policies and Externalities in Developing Countries

The objective of this article is to clarify the stakes and levers of local growth policies in the current context of the developing countries and to understand the relationship between externalities and agglomeration of firms in order to influence the parameters of externalities and to allow a better distribution of economic activities in space.
