    Abstract

    Based on research recently completed for The Scottish Office, this article examines aspects of Scottish interfirm cooperation in Western Europe (Raines, Bachtler and McBride, 1995). It concentrates particularly on the motives for forming agreements and the relative importance of cooperation in the process of business internationalization.
