Abstract: The experiences of newly industrializing countries (NICs) in Asia (ie, South Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, & Singapore) with high technology industry are shown to be overwhelmingly positive. This result is due not only to the technical & economic requirements of high technology industry, but, more importantly, to the economic environment in the NICs, particularly their tight labor markets & rising skill & educational levels. It is suggested that, especially with state assistance, developing countries can transcend technological barriers & acquire the indigenous scientific & entrepreneurial capacity to develop new technology, & pose a strong competitive challenge to industrial countries.
