Territorial organization: Concept and strategy
Territories are nowadays at the center of economic development strategies and is the object of political actions which often confuses territorial actors with the economic interests of the territories they represent and defend (Hatem, 2004a). The competitiveness is characterized by flexibility, diversity, quality and innovation rather than costs. The importance of resources and activities can be adapted to local conditions by transforming them into competitive advantages.
The attractiveness of a territory is generally viewed as its capacity to attract and retain mobile factors of production and / or populations. In the sense of regional economy, the territory is a city, a region, a country or an economic zone. The study of territorial attractiveness consists in determining whether a territory can be chosen by an actor as a site (temporary or sustainable) for all or part of its activities.
It is in this context that this article will shed light on the concept of the Territory in order to investigate its structure, organization, definition and history, as well as determining the factors that promote competitiveness and territorial attractiveness, with the aim of understanding what makes one territory more attractive than another when it comes to investments.
