The components of the last vector refer to characteristics of the production milieu. They are assumed to be common to all firms in the same region. With these assumptions a regional production function is specified as follows: Qr = F(vr,ur,x r ) = f(vr,ur)A r Ar = A(xr) (10) In (10) it is assumed that the F-function can be decomposed such that a regional efficiency factor Ar may be identified. Observe also that the functions f and A are explicitly assumed to be the same in all regions. Consider now A* = A(x*), where x* represents the most favourable composition of location 38 B.
