The greater concentration of industrial clusters is along Verona- Vicenza-Treviso axis The Veneto region includes 20% of Italian textile districts, 10% of leather shoe-manufacturing districts, 15% of engineering districts, as well as the main district for eyewear manufacturing in Italy

3 In this framework, policies supporting SMEs should: improve technological infrastructures promote the attraction of external investments develop new financial tools for innovation enhance flexibility and reduce the business red tape develop relationships among innovation the new knowledge based economy and regional economic clusters establish a European integrated platform in favor of new European networks of knowledge districts
