Resolution of The Riga Forum 2006: Investment in the Baltic metropolitan regions Towards a collaborative approach

Much has been made of the ideas of cities (or countries) as competitors – competing for export markets, competing for skilled labour, competing for visitors, competing for investment. The approach of the Riga Forum 2006  is to question the universal validity of  the ‘competitive’ model and is instead based on the premise that competition is not the entire story, that perhaps cities are not exact analogues of private firms competing for profit and that benefits can derive from collaboration and alliances.
