    Abstract

    This study examines the issue of indirect technology transfer through both horizontal and vertical spillovers from foreign direct investment (FDI). Combining both input-output data for 2000 and a balanced micro-panel data set for the period 2000-2004, we estimate total factor productivity (TFP) of establishments as a function of the different extent of foreign presence and inter industry linkages; amongst other explanatory variables.
