Abstract

This paper examines the statistical relationships involving export intensity, embedding environment, and three types of technological intensity (human resource intensity, process technology intensity, and research and development intensity). The embedding environment measures the degree of infrastructure support for innovation. The sample consists of auto parts firms in China, Indonesia, Korea, Malaysia, The Philippines, Taiwan, and Thailand. For the local sample, export intensity and the embedding environment are positively significant for the three technological intensities. For the foreign sample, export intensity and embedding environment are positively significant only for the research and development intensity. The strong positive relationship between foreign ownership and export intensity shows that foreign firms enjoy greater access in export markets.
