Description - Technological Capabilities and Export Success in Asia by Dieter Ernst

In Technological Capabilities and Export Success in Asia, a team of international contributors argue that a policy of cheap labour, combined with currency devaluation is no longer sufficient for export success. They demonstrate through a series of case studies of firms in the textile garment and electronic industries of five Asian economies - Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, Indonesia and Vietnam - that learning and capability formation are critical to sustain competitiveness. The main findings of these case studies include: * growing international competition and rising labour costs have reduced the time that new entrants into a market have for enjoying wage and cost advantages * there are no fixed formulas or sequences in technology capability formation for firms to become successful exporters of manufactured goods * but continuous innovation in product design, prodcution processes, management routines, marketing and the organization of production are the basis for competitiveness in all industries and in all countries * learning and internalization of knowledge are crucial to acquiring the technological know-how to break into export markets and then maintain market share * and domestic demand is of increasing importance in the region in terms of providing opportunities for dynamic growth in the market for manufactured goods.
