The purpose of this paper is to review international technology transfer issues and contribute to the development of effective technology policies in China.
The construct of this paper is based on comprehensive review of recent literatures in technology transfer and innovation. Detailed discussions follow to give implications in policy making.
Technology transfer policy needs to consider influencing factors from various sources and levels. Government should strive to nurture indigenous innovation capacity, and improve the efficiency of international technology transfer.
The environments and conditions for international technology transfer have changed significantly in the last decade. Due to China's rapid development in recent years, many traditional channels of technology transfer are no longer efficient or effective. This paper brings related research issues up to date by reviewing some latest literatures from the perspectives of innovation and technology development. The findings and implications are meaningful for both industry and policy makers.
