This paper describes new methodology techniques for analyzing the competitiveness of clusters, using modifications of the Porter Diamond Model. The study measures 39 attributes of competitiveness affecting the performance and development of three RMG industry clusters. The paper, which is part of the CCED research project, has involved on of the most in-depth analyses conducted in the competitiveness industry clusters in South Asia. The analytical methodology proved to be useful for strategizing identified strategic opportunities for interventions bu the government and cluster stakeholders to enhance the competitiveness of the ready made garment industries in the three countries.
