Description - Technology, Competitiveness and the State by Greg Felker

Over the last decade Malaysia's remarkable economic performance has attracted attention around the world and been subject to much study and enthusiastic acclaim. However, in the wake of the present financial crisis, the debate has centred on whether this impressive growth rate can be sustained. As the economy moves beyond growth based on low labour costs and other factor-endowed advantages, industrial technology development becomes increasingly critical to continued growth. This volume, and its companion, Industrial Technology Development in Malaysia , examine and evaluate Malaysian industrialization in terms of its experience of and prospects for industrial technology development. The focus is on role played by state-sponsored innovation in the process economic development and in the context of national development strategies. Technology, Competitiveness and the State , provides a valuable analysis of the technological development of a Newly Industrializing Country and reflects on whether existing development strategies can be maintained in the wake of the financial crises sweeping the East Asian economies.
