The Service Economy of Bavaria
Regional analysis of sectoral and geographical dynamics of the Bavarian service economy
Bavaria has a great potential in the development of knowledge-based and competitive service sectors. This potential is far from exhausted; it is therefore essential, especially for political decision makers, to pursue high innovativeness and diversification of the service sectors. The main goal of this research is the identification of future trends in service sector development as well as the opportunities and demands of the Bavarian service industry within the framework of innovative capabilities, financial problems, qualification and labour market, and internationalization. The empirical approach combines quantitative analyses, focused company interviews and expert workshops with representatives of the service industry, the politics, business associations and chambers.
