Hide / Show Abstract

Sectors differ from each other with respect to their productivity growth. Such differences may relate, for instance, to the intensity with which sectors use capital and skilled labour in their production; the scope for product and process innovation and the absorption of external knowledge; the degree of product standardisation; the scope for economies of scale; and the exposure to international competition.
