The 6th PPD Global Workshop “PPD for Competitive Economies” took stock of recent developments in PPD knowledge, discussed specific PPD cases, explored critical PPD related topics, and helped build capacity to effectively manage and monitor a PPD process during the PPD life cycle, from entry to exit. Coming from 20 countries, more than 80 representatives participated. All involved with business forums, investors’ councils, or competitiveness partnerships, and all from both the public and private sectors, and from sponsoring donors (such as IFC, the World Bank, or others). Specific themes that were explored during the workshop were organized along the PPD lifecycle:

1. Designing and managing PPDs, including in post- crisis environments
2. Ensuring effectiveness of PPD secretariats (practical steps and processes)
3. Achieving sector competitiveness through PPD
4. Improving inclusion and governance in PPD platforms
5. Measuring PPD results
6. Transitioning out of PPD

The workshop lasted two days, followed by a two-day investment policy workshop with a fifth optional “Clinic” day offered at the end of the week for participants who desired to get detailed questions answered about their particular PPD initiatives by the PPD Global Product Team in an open clinic format. Below are the papers, case studies and presentations delivered by the presenters. Photos of the workshop participants can be found in the PPD Facebook club

A case of sector competitiveness through PPD in Spain: the Agricultural Machinery cluster Lleida, Catalonia

The case of the Agricultural Machinery cluster in Lleida was presented as a successful example of sector competitiveness through PPD. One of the main challenges of this process was to transform a backward industry into a modern sustainable cluster capable of responding to a sophisticated international demand. It was initially led by the Catalan government in 1995, and then followed by the Association of Agricultural Machinery Manufacturers and Exporters of Catalonia (FEMAC), created in 1998. In order to have a complete insight of the evolution of the dialogue amongst the different agents in Lleida, three representatives of the cluster were invited to present of their role and share their perception of the process.
