Due to the location of wood processing and wooden goods production companies in the Smorgon region, the area is considered as area for realization of the concept of "smart specialization". Not only all the research and resources are taken into account, but also a full range of production facilities in the region (location, population, climate, natural resources), as well as secondary factors (social needs, potential users, public sector innovations). The initiative to create furniture cluster is characterized by enhanced growth opportunities as a basis for the development of key industries. As a result, it becomes possible to link the economy and the development potential of the region through the creation of innovative solutions.

Our intention is effective integration and usage of knowledge and skills improved during long-term economic activity in the region. Based on the potential of wood and furniture industry, we aim to link our industrial development with the knowledge and to use the support of the local administration. Due to such conditions, Smorgon district will take the leading position on the national level.

Therefore, we propose to include the initiative of FLLC Kronospan regarding organization of Smorgon Furniture Cluster into to the national strategic development plan as a tool for the region promotion and improvement.
