High-tech industries have to locate where suitable skilled workers are available.

Firm migration is a particular form of locational adjustment. Here, we define it as a firm’s change of address from location A to location B. This definition is most suited for small and medium-sized single-plant firms, but less so for multiplant firms and large enterprises.
