Upgrading the System of Innovation in Late-Industrialising Countries - The Role of Transnational Corporations in Thailand's Manufacturing Sector
Reihe: Wirtschaftsgeographie
Bd. 40, 2006, 320 S., 24.90 EUR, 24.90 CHF, br., ISBN 3-8258-0118-2

This book investigates the potential contribution of transnational corporations (TNC) to the upgrading of systems of innovation in late-industrialising countries. It looks specifically at TNC-affiliates in Thailand's manufacturing sector and compares them with firms in Penang (Malaysia) and Singapore. Thereby, it examines the technological capabilities of TNC-affiliates vis-à-vis local firms in order to assess whether or not TNC-affiliates are suitable learning and cooperation partners for local firms, and can, consequently, be considered as capable contributors to the improvement of the system of innovation.
