Abstract

This article provides a comparative analysis of technology-based economic development by examining industry strategies in the satellite navigation, wireless communications and digital audio broadcasting sectors. The leading promoters in each sector claimed that coordinated, supportive public economic strategies and support were imperative for European competitiveness, but the ensuing support differed across these sectors. This article contends that the relative position of the leading economic actors in the structure of international competition and the import-competition situation explains this variation.
