Vietnam's Technological Progress
What is it about?
This paper examines Vietnamese progress in the telecommunication goods industry. Despite its late entry into the regional telecommunication goods industry, Vietnam has overcome its initial technological backwardness. However, Vietnam's continued ability to climb the technological ladder depends on the efficacy of its industrial policy as well as the vitality of its overall science and technological base.
Why is it important?
The paper shows that developing countries can still acquire technological know-how in a relatively short period of time, provided they are astute in implementing suitable industrial policies. Thus, there is still some opportunities for developing countries to catch-up to their more developed counterparts.
