This chapter presents a case study of the Moravia and Silesian Region, which is currently undergoing transformation with the Hyundai car plant investment opening in 2009. This region is to be a major recipient of convergence objective funding in the 2007 to 2013 period. Ostrava and Yorkshire have been building common links since the Czech Republic joined the EU in 2004 sharing experience in delivering Objective One Structural Funds’ strategies. Whilst process exchanges are important, there is still a long way to go before coherent regional strategies and plans begin to emerge in Czech regions, leading to implementation and new regional governance. One key question for regeneration management is whether coal and steel are to be replaced by advanced automobile manufacturing, which is in itself transitory and if a broader diversification strategy is required to build the knowledge economy in the Czech Republic.
