The speed of technological advance internationally can reduce the competitive capacities of the LDC's industrial sectors concerned and therefore increase the need for industry-specific defined policies.

22 In contrast, an increase in the speed of technological advance internationally can create serious problems for LDCs in the process of getting acceptable 24 Technological Capabilities in Developing Countries levels of TC in the sectors concerned. Thus, when the technological frontier changes significantly and new products or processes substitute for the mature ones, the local TCs achieved through the production and use of the latter may not be sufficient to maintain competitiveness while the technological frontier is moving ahead.

Economies of scale are realised. 3. International markets demand certain product specifications at a competitive price in order to penetrate these markets effort has to be spent on product quality upgrading. 4.
