The give-and-take arrangements in large regions of Europe, as well as the ad hoc intergovernmental agreements in the United States, such as that of Seattle’s King County in Washington State, could be described as cooperative regionalism. An example of flexible arrangements is found in the growing use of consortia (agreements) in Brazil, which have grown from a handful in the 1990s to hundreds today (Spink, 2005). Local Economic Development and City Regions Recently, analytical work has begun to focus on the role of city regions in creating wealth.

Seven key issues are common to development processes in most, if not all, regions of the world, each of which has a bearing—sometimes strong, at other times tenuous—on LED: (i) national policy and strategy, (ii) organizational arrangements of the state, (iii) functional responsibilities, (iv) financing, (v) mechanisms of participation and accountability, (vi) institutional capacity, and (vii) the growing role of city regions. The main areas of concern—intergovernmental coordination, local government capacity in matters of private investment, regulation of supralocal territorial units in regions and metropolitan areas—accentuate issues that are already points of contention in most countries.

In the United States, professional associations of municipal employees, rather than the government, manage these systems. The issue is not so much the nature of the legal framework, but rather that few governments have established a unified system of merit-based public employment that offers professional employment and mobility. Other hopeful signs of progress include the concept of new public administration, or NPA. ” Many countries have launched overtures to improve professional competence of local public officials or to explore alternatives to direct service, such as increased private provision with local public supervision, as is the case with public transport in Europe, Latin America, and the United States, and of swapping national and local employees (as in Germany, Japan, and Korea) so that national officials might see the world from the perspective of their local counterparts.
