Art, Finance and Logistics: Creative Combination for Economic Development
Languages of publication
The research focuses on the setting-up of a free zone strengthening the economic diversification of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. Dedicated to storage, handling and trading of high value items and in particular artworks and jewellery. The Luxembourg Freeport was inaugurated in September 2014. Using the Resource-Based View as theoretical framework, the paper aims to show what combinations of resources can have a positive impact on economic activities in connection with the Freeport. The research confirms that these activities go beyond pure logistical and operational sights. The findings highlight a triptych of resources justifying this location in an environment where art, finance and logistics seem to create a virtuous circle benefiting economic development of the country and promoting the rise of clustering effects.
