Uittreksel

The paper discusses the impact of Western manufacturers on competition and innovation in the telecommunication sector in Hungary, Poland and the Czech Republic. It examines the issue of market dominance by shedding some light on the industrial history, the current evolution and market structure of telecommunication equipment industry in these countries. In using case study evidence, the paper demonstrates that the contribution of Western manufacturers has been important to the accumulation of firm specific assets and sectoral growth of the telecommunication switching industry in CEE countries. It concludes that an involvement of competition authorities in the telecommunication switching market or strict imposition of procurement initiatives of the European Union does not seem desirable for the time being. Furthermore, there are serious threats to local telecommunication manufacturing in CEE countries if current EU procurement policies are imposed.
