Building technological capabilities through international market linkages

Technological catch-up for least developed countries requires access to the international knowledge pool and the ability to learn, master and adapt foreign technologies and thereby benefit from international technology diffusion. This process includes transfer of technology, which takes place through several channels. These can be formal (e.g. licensing, foreign direct investment) or informal (e.g. movement of people) and/or market (e.g. interaction with upstream suppliers or downstream customers) or non-market (e.g. technical assistance programmes of official development agencies or NGOs).
