Abstract/Summary: Largely based on an empirical study of Egypts car industry, this paper criticises traditional approaches to and models of technology transfer in the new age of openness to trade and Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) and in the light of Egyptian experience. It is argued that these ideas and models, such as technological independence, need to be reexamined.
