As condições que promovem a competitividade nacional têm sido objecto de política governamental e debatidas no meio académico e empresarial. Neste artigo discutimos as condições de competitividade nacional em termos de sistemas de inovação, investimento do e no estrangeiro, capacidades tecnológicas e instituições. Os países inovadores beneficiam de efeitos de aprendizagem localizada que podem ser utilizados internamente e explorados no estrangeiro. A participação em redes de investigação e desenvolvimento não é a única avenida para o desenvolvimento tecnológico na presença de uma atitude de aprendizagem e adopção das mais recentes tecnologias.
