Abstract

While foreign technology inflow and exchange would continue to be necessary, greater emphasis should be paid on the selection of such technologies and the term and conditions under which they are acquired. Although user enterprises should generally select the technology they consider most suitable, governments might prescribe guidelines in this regard and also increase the bargaining capacity of such enterprises through screening of foreign technology proposals. Policy and institutional measures should also be formulated to encourage the rapid absorption and adaptation of such technologies to local conditions.
