"Main research direction" ?

    try 1):
        If something is produced somewhere, in some territory
        And the territory has some specific property (geographic, social/economic, ...)
        Then there is a good chance, there will be specific types of product / service available to export to other places

    try 2):
        Globalisation very much erased "opportunity" for small-scale mercantilism
        However, specific types of source items ["authentic", hand-crafted, ... fast developing like tech gadgets]
        ... in specific localities [less reached by globalism - like Canaries]
        ... might present this opportunity
