Notes
  • This paper investigates the potential impact of increased R&​D efforts and structural changes in Portugal on labour productivity. The paper addresses Portugal’s ambition, expressed in the 2005 Technological Plan. Based on existing literature on the relation between R&​D expenditures, structural change and productivity, we evaluate the contribution of R&​D and medium to high-tech industries on productivity over the last 30 years. Our results confirm the importance of governement’s R&​D and of business R&​D in the medium to high-tech sectors, as they stimulate productivity growth. However, we cannot hypothesize that productivity growth was primarily rooted on the development of medium-high technology industries.
