Abstract

This article examines the determinants of technological innovation activities by businesses in Newly Industrialised Countries (NIC). After reviewing the factors explaining these activities, it uses a logit model to explore an econometric estimate based on individual business data for the Turkish market. The results show the positive contribution made by both imported capital goods and the qualification level of workers to the probability of innovation; an initially increasing and subsequently decreasing relation between company size, sector concentration and the probability of innovation; the absence of a positive impact of foreign direct investment and licences acquired by local business on innovation; and a positive two-directional relationship between innovation and export decisions.
