Abstract

The high-technology industry is composed of various sectors which are characterized by more strict and demanding clients within international growing markets. Developing countries face harsher domestic conditions than others, however, there are some countries such as Mexico, China and India whose industries have been recognized as reliable supply chains, especially for the high-technology one.

Supply Chain Collaboration or Strategic Technology Partnering’s is a pathway for learning and collaboration that will enhance benefits such as optimizing resources, make operations more efficient and most importantly, foment collaboration and knowledge sharing amongst industries that will enable their development.

The government plays an important role as well in industry development. Government support and collaboration is an essential element for industry expansion, especially in developing countries. Alongside SCC, the government can be a critical starting point or obstacle for the high-technology industry.

This paper studies the impact SCC alongside government support has had over the past two decades in the Mexican aerospace and electronics sectors of the high-technology industry. Through analysis of literature and data obtained from semi-structured interviews carried out with subjects that are or have been involved in these sectors, it is concluded that this strategy alongside government cooperation and support are critical factors that will foment industry development and improve the high-technology one for developing countries.
