This chapter discusses the commonalities and differences in local and regional economic development (LRED) across England, Northern Ireland, Australia, and the Unites States based on the results of a survey of LRED institutions. The findings suggest that while the institutional architecture and practice of LRED in each nation is unique, there is a remarkable degree of commonality across nations. In all four nations the provision of business support and advice was considered the most effective strategy available to the respondents. Networking and working in partnerships were also important in all four nations.

Keywords: LRED; England; Northern Ireland; Australia; United States; institutional architecture; business support; networking; partnerships
