Abstract The strategies of Pacific countries and regions for connecting to global knowledge flows are examined. The chapter underlines the importance of links to export networks, angel investor networks, industry clusters and research consortia for the internationalisation of innovative small firms. Examples of successful connection to global knowledge flows are taken from Silicon Valley, Korea, Taiwan and Singapore. A number of New Zealand initiatives are also outlined, including the commercialisation activities of the Crown Research Institutes, the wood processing strategy, research and technology networks, the education and skills strategy, immigration procedures and investment funds. An eight-step programme is outlined for building high growth, high value added industries.
