The master plan contains measurable development goals and is intended to provide a strategy that enables Brandenburg's plastics and chemical industry to secure and expand the market positions it has achieved. This will be achieved by analysing existing strengths and weaknesses and subsequent development of proposals for action to overcome the weaknesses and expand on the strengths. The areas of action will define lead projects in discussions with cluster players that will be addressed as priorities. The master plan will develop guidelines for mastering the challenges the cluster is facing, e.g. the need for sustainable economics and securing the recruitment of skilled workforce. The master plan will be a living document that is updated and extended.
