      The economic growth of developing countries requires the acquisition of technological capabilities. In countries at the world technological frontier, such capabilities refer to cutting edge skills to innovate entirely new products. In developing countries, the requisite technological capabilities are broader, and include production engineering, project execution and incremental innovation to. IJTLID is devoted to the study of the nature of technological innovation processes at the level of firms, industries/clusters and countries, the various influences on such processes, and their implications for industrial growth, techno-economic and social development in the context of contemporary late-industrialising countries. Its broad approach will help uncover the dynamics and intricacies.

        Domestic firms on the other hand had longer-term productivity improvements, mainly from introducing process innovations. This pattern is consistent with the initial presence of higher capabilities in foreign firms and the greater opportunities for learning by domestic enterprises. Technological capabilities and foreign source of tech-nology The successful catching-up of rms in East Asian economies points out for-eign advanced technology as one of the most important source for the accumu-lation of rms’ technological capabilities from experience-based to research-based level.
