Technology-Driven Internationalization: Central-Eastern European Perspective
Since the 1990s of the twentieth century onward, Central-Eastern European countries have been extensively involved in these two processes—regarding increasing share of ICT and high-tech exports in country’s total export value—and additionally, across these economies, changes in the level of access to and use of ICT have been observed. The main target of this research is to contribute to the present state of the art, by proving extensive empirical evidence on firm internationalization, demonstrated through intensification of technology-driven export activities, across seven selected (Czech Republic, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Slovakia, and Slovenia) Central-Eastern European countries, between 1995 and 2015. To this aim, we use data from OECD STAN Bilateral Trade in Goods by Industry and End Use Database (ISIC Rev.3 and ISIC Rev.4) on high-tech, ICT, and low-tech export (as share of total export). Methodological framework combines descriptive statistics, logistic growth models and technological substitution models, which allow for unveiling examined tendencies across analyzed countries.
