The historical industrial regions
Three most industrialised areas in the world
Many big industries have their headquarters in these areas. The benefit they take is their advanced technologies and their local markets, although industry in these areas is declining.
Plus some regional industrialised powers such as Australia and New Zealand.
Why do these countries have highly developed and growing industrialisation?
Globalisation: this allows them to build factories of cheap labour force for then exporting the products to developed countries.
Exploitation of their natural resources, that normally are abundant
