Abstract

This special issue reports on the work of a group carrying out research into the development and location of producer services in the nations that have formed the organisation for Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation. Producer services are selected for closer study because they perform a strategic role in the long-term growth of national and regional economies. They are often used as an indicator of the economic maturation of advanced economies, so the rate and scale of their growth should accelerate as development spreads around the APEC region. These services are of interest, too, as they have a fundamental effect upon metropolitan structure and urban form. That impact, seen largely in office buildings or office parks, creates special local planning and urban policy agendas. In fact, as one of the papers in the collection shows, the planning associated with Central Business District development is integrated into national economic planning to facilitate the economic growth of some nations. To understand this urban context, the project (of which the papers in this volume are a first stage) explores ways that shifts in economic structure in favour of services have been associated with the emergence of new roles for some major cities,
