概要 This paper examines the determinants of total factor productivity in the Malaysian automotive industry, focusing on the effectiveness of government policies. Our panel data analysis shows that the productivity of the automotive industry in Malaysia highly depends on the technology embodied within imports. Government policies have not contributed to the technological upgrading of the industry. The policies to protect the domestic producers from international competition and to favour bumiputra firms seem to have adverse impacts on productivity.
