Abstract

This paper examines the development of indigenous electronics firms and argues that there is a need to develop growth onto international markets of a number of Scottish electronics concerns. The paper argues that the emphasis of companies which operate at internatonal trading levels should be supported by government agencies, such as the Scottish Development Agency (SDA) by the encouragement of a greater degree of indigenous spin-off which stems from the foreign base in Scottish electronics, is highly technological in its product base, is export-oriented, and over time will develop multinational characteristics in its own right.
