NATIONAL COMPETITIVENESS IN HIGH TECHNOLOGY MANUFACTURING.
|Title:||NATIONAL COMPETITIVENESS IN HIGH TECHNOLOGY MANUFACTURING.|
|Description:||This paper reports the findings of a research project to identify key factors associated with a nation's ability to become competitive in high technology manufacturing and marketing. The project developed a conceptual model for a 'Technology Delivery System,' distinguishing four sets of contributing factors: (1) national commitment to technology-based development, (2) socioeconomic infrastructure, (3) technological infrastructure, and (4) productive capacity. The model was tested against indicators of competitiveness in high technology, including world market share, emphasis on high technology products among exports, and recent changes in market share. Results suggest that national orientation and socioeconomic infrastructure can overcome limitations in technological infrastructure.|
