D’Oliveira, J. L. P., Guedes, L. G. de R., Pasqualetto A.
Abstract—This article discusses the importance of regional business cooperation networks that are formed by micro and small-sized businesses which consist in efficient ways to create work and wealth, in addition to sustainable development and the search for cleaner production. It is understood that cooperation networks are eco-systemically. By having such characteristic they bring together several companies that aim to achieve corporate gains. From the micro and medium-sized businesses point of view their importance noticed by the others members of the network, its flexibility for the ability of quickly making a decision, and the close relationships of trust among its managers are the biggest success factors for the establishment of network cooperation.

Index Terms—Business cooperation, enterprise networks, small and micro-sized businesses.
