Abstract

This paper investigates the extent of convergence amongst the 51 prefectures of Greece during the time period 1970-2000. The main objectives are to discover whether there is a convergence club amongst the regions, to establish whether there is a spatial pattern to club membership, and to assess the impact of agglomeration effects and regional capacities to innovate or adopt technology. The results suggest that there is a significant spatial dimension to regional growth and that members of the convergence club are in close spatial proximity. Technology spillovers are also significant in providing an explanation of regional growth patterns.
