Klappentext
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.
