Recent years have seen a transformation in the accessibility of high technology, bringing many of the most recent developments into developing countries. Modern telecommunications, based on microelectronics, are critically important for developing economies. They represent both the basic communications infrastructure for economic and industrial development and a springboard for further activities in the information technology area, including informatics and telematics. For some developing countries the opportunity might exist to "leap frog" older, less efficient forms of TC infrastructure and go directly into microelectronic technology. However, so far TC progress has been concentrated in the most advanced regions of the world. This study is the first to examine the challenges and difficulties facing Third World countries in this field. Extending existing theories of technology transfer and diffusion, the book offers an explanation of the forces for change in the telecommunications industry. It then examines Brazil's experience in developing TC technology, building up a modern TC infrastructure and controlling the large multinational suppliers of TC equipment. The book explains why Brazil's efforts in this area have succeeded and offers lessons for other developing countries.
