Experiences of Technological Partnership of Japan with Overseas: The Case of Steel Industry
Three cases of Japanese experience of transfer of technology to newly industrialized countries in the steel industry during the 1960s and 70s are analyzed comparatively. The most successfu1 case in the Korean POSCO project is compared with the apparently failed case in Mexican SICARTSA project and a sort of intermediate case in the Brazilian USIMINAS projects. Both factors of success and failure are analyzed. Observations from this comparative analysis led us to conclude that the success of technology transfer depends very much on the quality of the system of learning of a recipient. The system incorporates efforts in education, finance strategy, coordination of the market, clear targeting of quality, and stimulus for technology absorption.
