Abstract : In developing countries, the idle capacities of enterprises is a problem related to sectoral organization. Because of incomplete sector formation the enterprises are involved in manufacturing areas unconnected to their basic operations. In some sectors (especially in oligopoly situations) firms contribute to sector formation. Generally, and especially in competitive sectors, it is not possible for sector formation without intervention. If no aid is provided there will be idle capacity generated. By establishing a supportive central information system at the beginning, the centre could generate information and publish it in the fields of marketing, finance, technology and machinery. There is sufficient disorganised information and data capacity to warrant such an information centre. All that is required is to organise it. In the case of Turkey, the information required is mainly concentrated in the Union of Chamber of Commerce and Industries where such a centre could be organised.
