BOTZMAN TECHNOLOGY & COMPETITIVENESS IN MEXICO
BOTZMAN TECHNOLOGY & COMPETITIVENESS IN MEXICO. Technology and Competitiveness in Mexico examines Mexico's efforts to transform from Third Word to First World economic status as international trade agreements are signed, and many closed economies open. Thomas J. Botzman explores this process by consolidating scholarly literature on Mexican technological development, including that published since the foreign reserve crisis and the subsequent devaluation of the peso in 1994. He discusses the technology transfer practices and industrial transformation as routes to international competitiveness in the manufacturing sector, an accepted key to economic growth and development, while highlighting the strengths and weaknesses of industrial development in Mexico. Botzman seeks to provide a benchmark for the study of modern technology development and competitiveness of Mexican industry through a greater understanding of the cooperative linkages that need to be formed between academia, government, and private industry using case studies of the automobile, textile, chemical, and steel industries.
