1University of Cambridge Varieties of Industrial Policy: Models, Packages and Transformation CyclesAntonio AndreoniCentre for Science, Technology and Innovation Policy Institute for Manufacturing - Department of EngineeringUniversity of CambridgeThe paper aims at revealing and contrasting emerging patterns and trends in industrial policy practices.- taxonomic and comparative stylisation of countries’ industrial policy models, packages and transformation cycles,- detailed references to specific institutional solutions and policy measures.The paper concludes by pointing to the new emerging industrial policy rationales, reflected in the variety of industrial policy practices.
2OutlineIndustrial policy revolutions: turning points, rationales and varietyVarieties of industrial policy: models, packages and transformation cycles – country casesThe future of industrial policies: emerging trends and practices for value creation and captureThe first section introduces the main waves of industrial policy and major turning points in both their application and with respect to the different set of underlying policy rationales. Also we will highlight the main sources of IP variety across countries.Section 2 of the paper then focuses on the analysis of three leading mfg economies – namely the US, Germany and Japan – whose industrial policies have constituted historically ‘learning benchmarks’ in their respective continental regions. Furthermore, three major economies in the catch-up phase are considered – namely Brazil, South Africa and China – which, despite their varying sizes and other fundamental differences, are key reference points and loci for industrial policy experimentation and innovation.The last section takes stock of the multi-country comparative analysis to extract the emerging trends, variety and convergence of industrial policies in major selected economies. By distilling these common themes, the paper points to the new emerging industrial policy rationales, reflected in the variety of industrial policy practices.
3Industrial Policy Revolutions: Turning points, rationales and variety I would like to make 3 introductory points
4Industrial policy waves and turning points Now, let me start with the higher level picture…The theory and practice of industrial policy have gone through three main waves, each of them characterised by extreme variety in terms of Ips both within and across countries (especially according to their stage of industrial development). Although, common/recurring themes…After the Second World War, during the so called ‘golden age of capitalism’, industrial policy was adopted as one of the main tools for countries’ indicative planning. It took many forms, from import substitution to export promotion, from infant industry protection to state ownership of enterprises in strategic sectors or national champions’ development (Cimoli et al., 2009). This ‘picking winners’ approach was grounded in the idea that market failures are pervasive (especially in developing economies) and that governments have to take a role in countries’ structural transformation.During the so called ‘Washington Consensus era’, the idea that government failures might be even worse than market failures and structural coordination problems became dominant. As a result of this radical shift in the academic debate, the industrial policy discourse changed and industrial policy increasingly became a banned word. The reality is however different, as even in more neoliberal countries where mainstream economics was dominant, governments’ interventions were reduced only to a certain extent, or simply reshaped or scaled down.The third turning point can be identified in the influential East Asian Miracle Report (World Bank, 1993) and the acknowledgment that fastest catching up economies like Japan, Taiwan, South Korea, Singapore and Hong-Kong were adopting a variety of industrial, trade and technology policies based on ‘wrong’ economic theories and rationales (Chang, 1994; Stiglitz, 1996).The new modern debate on industrial policy started is long run towards a slow process of increasing ‘normalisation’ (Rodrik, 2007).

6Sources of Industrial Policy Variety Variety in national contexts: structures and ‘forms of capitalism’Industrial structure and accumulated production capabilitiesVariety of capitalism (Coordinated ME – intermediate varieties – Liberal ME)Institutional complementarities & persistence/path dependenceVariety in industrial policy design and implementation frameworkModelsPackagesTransformation cyclesVariety in industrial policy implementation and policy regimePolitical economy and dominant ideologyGovernment capabilities and inter-agency coordinationEmbedded autonomyVariety of monitoring and evaluation frameworks for policy learningWhen we talk about production capabilities we talk about a complex mix of technologies, very often collectively owned…
7Varieties of Industrial Policy: Models, packages and transformation cyclesNow that we have established the need to look at the variety of industrial policies across countries, the question becomes ‘How can we disentangle such variety in a structured way, thus allowing an analysis of emerging trends, common themes and IP rationales?’The paper will mainly focus on disentangling the second source of variety, namely those related to IP design (models, packages and transformation cycles) and implementation under certain policy regime.
8Country cases & scopeWe limit the analysis to 6 countries: Taken all together these 6 economies account for 50% of the world manufacturing value added and 40% of the manufactures trade.Recent industrial policy model/package…IP transformation cycles - In particular the latter concept refers to the time horizon/span within which a number of different measures are adopted as part of a comprehensive policy package.
9Industrial Policy Models The industrial policy model is defined according to the way in which countries frame their industrial policy strategy and the different actors involved in its design and implementation.Countries may rely on either articulated plan-based strategies or multiple initiative-based measures.The way in which plans or initiatives are designed and implemented may vary:Top-down / centralisedBottom-up / decentralisedMixed / multi-layered systemThe choice of a certain policy model is partially determined by the inherited/state of national, regional and local institutions as well as distribution of government capabilitiesIn the centralised/plan based model (top-down), targets are set and objectives and lines of action are formalised in national plans or strategies (e.g. East Asian economies, but also Brazil, India and South Africa). Countries adopting a de-centralised/initiative based model rely on several actions and programs each targeting a specific component of the competitiveness strength of the country (typically US).The way in which national plans or initiatives are designed and implemented may also vary. Indeed, countries may follow a top-down, bottom-up (or mixed) model, defined according to the way in which the design and implementation functions are performed at the national or sub-national level (or in a mixed form).
10Industrial Policy Packages Industrial policy as a “package of interactive measures” (Stiglitz, 1996)“…in East Asia, free trade, export promotion (which is, of course, not free trade), and infant industry protection were organically integrated, both in cross-section terms (so there always will be some industries subject to each category of policy, sometimes more than one at the same time) and over time (so, the same industry may be subject to more than one of the three over time).” (Chang, 2009)We could have focused on single specific measure in each country (and we partially do that…but risk of missing the real functioning, e.g. Fraunhofer) but in order to understand how they work we need to look at the policy models and the package within which they are implemented (indeed the same policy measure within different policy packages can have completely different effects on the incentive system, firms behaviour and so on…and finally system impact on structural transformation)Each individual industrial policy measure can be more or less selective and more or less well designed (there has been too much emphasis on this…). However, its effectiveness will depend upon the fact that it is part of a package of interactive measures…in other words, policy measures never work in isolation (like technologies!) and the combined effect of (sometimes only apparently contrasting) measures can be extremely different from the one expected. This is highlighted for example by Chang…How can we map different policy packages?
11Policy package matrix INTERVENTION LEVELS * * * * * * * (O’Sullivan, Andreoni, Lopez and Gregory, 2013)NATIONAL MANUFACTURING SYSTEM“FACTOR INPUTS”KnowledgeLabour Production capacity Resources&infrastructureFinancial CapitalGlobal manufacturing systems & marketsINTERVENTION LEVELSManufacturing firmManufacturing sectorCross-sectoralMacroeconomic framework *Policy measure****We distinguish policy measures according to the factor inputs they act upon, namely knowledge (in particular Mfg R&D), labour (including skills and education), production capacity (availability and capacity to use and organise manufacturing machinery, factories, equipment, etc), resources and infrastructures (in particular support for energy/resource efficiency), finance (mainly credit and financial capital).The functioning of the national manufacturing system (NMS) critically depends upon the availability, productivity and integration of these factor inputs. However, the success of the NMS also depends on its capacity to interact with global markets and production networks. This is why together with the consideration of factor inputs policies we complete our analysis with an additional category grouping policy measures related to global manufacturing systems and markets.Together with the standard levels of policy interventions, namely manufacturing firms, manufacturing sectors and macroeconomic framework, the matrix identifies measures acting upon cross-sectoral manufacturing activities. Within the cross-sectoral manufacturing activities category we include all those measures having an impact across multiple sectors and along various supply chains of the national manufacturing system.Independently from the policy model and policy package, policy measures can be clustered around either policy types (trade, technology, education…) or key targets (this is increasingly the case!)Policy measures are intrinsically interdependent and can affect each other in more or less intended ways. This interdependence among policy measures introduces a fundamental problem of policy coordination (meaning reaching coherence) at each point in time and policy alignment over time.*key targets/policy type*
12Transformation cycles Policy measures (within policy packages) tend to operate with different time horizons according to the specific target/challenge they are addressing, but also to the extent to which they receive continuous policy support and are not impeded by exogenous factors.Transformation cycle 1Transformation cycle 2Transformation cycle 3Policy package 1Policy package 2Policy package 3Policy measurestWe focus on the most recent ‘transformation cycle’ given that we are aiming at identifying emerging trends, common themes and practices…for some countries this was triggered by the recent financial crisis, but even in these cases the new policy measures were de facto integrated within an pre-existing set of tools, measures and institutional frameworks…The concept of the ‘transformation cycle’ is introduced here to identify the time horizon/span within which a number of different measures are adopted as part of a comprehensive policy package.Countries’ difficulties in aligning policies over time within each transformation cycle as well as transitioning from one transformation cycle to another (thus from one policy package to another), help explain discontinuities in their industrialisation paths.
14Multi-layered model – initiative based United StatesMulti-layered model – initiative basedUS Federal Administration’s industrial policy focus on:Rebuilding framework conditions for US-based manufacturing competitiveness by providing access to skills and finance for SMEs, and by reducing costs faced by companies, such as those related to healthcare, taxes and energyCreating a ‘level playing field’ and ensuring access to international markets through bilateral agreements and enforcement of WTO regulationsBoosting advanced manufacturing R&D by allocating resources for science and technological innovation and supporting special agencies or programmesUS State-level - Multi-layered systemSectoral policies across all the spectrum of factor inputs (e.g. education, energy, etc.)Main triggers: Profound transformation of the National Manufacturing System – fear of loosing competencesMajor US companies have been increasingly offshoring their production plants and, more recently, their R&D centres. This trend is epitomized by DuPont’s strategic R&D investment in India or by IBM’s new R&D centres in China (Wessner and Wolff, 2012). The offshoring of large-scale manufacturing plants did not simply imply that new technologies and products generated in the US, such as rechargeable lithium-ion batteries, liquid crystal-displays, oxide ceramics, solar cells, and semiconductor memory devices and equipment, were manufactured abroad. It also resulted in a process of production and innovation de-linking that has undermined the innovation capacity of the US economic system, generating phenomena of technological lock-in and industrial commons destructions

17JapanRecent national government policy agenda has involved a range of measures focused on:Japan as manufacturing hub: Improving Japan’s overall attractiveness as a manufacturing hubAccessing world markets: Supporting the deployment of Japan’s technologies, products, engineering services to world market (in particular SMEs)Addressing energy supply shortagesThe Industrial Structure Vision 2010The Japanese state assumed a developmental role in the post-war period to the 1980s, marked by a leading role of the Ministry of International Trade and Industry, MITI (Johnson, 1982). As the Japanese economy stopped growing, reforms in the 1990s onwards started to redefine the role of MITI and the Japanese state in the affairs of industry. As the result of an overall transformation of government ministries in 2000, MITI was reorganized intothe Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, or METI—a change that has meant an increased emphasis on cross-cutting policies over sector-specific approachesJapan’s New Growth Strategy

19Japan Encouraging organisational change and SMEs direct global expansion/value captureConcerns about traditional industrial organisation (keiretsu):“Pyramid structure”: SMEs nurtured / protected by larger manufacturers of assembled products (build-to-order manufacturing model)SMEs hindered from capturing opportunities in growth markets despite “dominance” in range of technologies/capabilitiesMovement from the sale of individual products with advanced functions to the provision of integral system solutions combining manufacturing and service componentsPolicy measures:Creation of a SMEs’ overseas expansion support programme, extended guaranty insurances on overseas expansion, technical advisory services, and the establishment of overseas business expansion support centresDemonstration projects in developing countries, promotion of investment agreements and exports (JICA)Not all SMEs are the same!!! We have a number of specialist contractors who are critical in innovation dynamics, in attracting FDI and scaling up technologies, reduce time to the market, capture value!
20(German federal-level: ‘invisible hand’ rhetoric) GermanyRecent changes in Federal Government’s industrial policy agenda are mainly shifts in effort/emphasis (limited evidence of a new transformation cycle – continuity/adaptation):Boosting governmental education and R&D expenditureStronger coordination of policies around “central missions”: climate/energy, health/nutrition, mobility, security, communicationDevelopment of foreign markets: increased emphasis on market opportunities abroad, esp. associated with emerging global challengesGerman Lander-level - Multi-layered systemSectoral policiesInstitutional infrastructure nurturing / bottom-up modelEU supra-national levelDevelopment, manufacture, marketing of future consumer and investment goods / development of new production technologies best left to ‘the invisible hand’State should focus on creating clear, reliable framework conditions for consumers, firms and industrial productionDirect state intervention should be limited to exceptions, e.g. external effects in environmental or research sector; economies of scale within network industriesAn efficient and forward-looking industrial policy is not based on spending programmes for individual sectorsIt focuses on incorporating legitimate interests of industry into relevant policy areas – from education and technology to energy and the environment.Policy objective is to strengthen international competitiveness of firms by creating a level playing field(German federal-level: ‘invisible hand’ rhetoric)

Roughly 95 per cent of the Mittelstand are family-owned, and approximately 85 per cent are managed by their owner.More than the sophistication of the measures I want to stress how the strenght of Germnay industrial policy comes from his multi-layered system of institutions…Supporting SMEs through R&D collaboration networks grants/loans (ZIM), SMEs programmes (AiF), patient capital (KfM), chambers of commerce (AHKs)Sector-focused institutional infrastructure (including unions, regional banks, universities, R&D Centres) each of them performing multiple functions

BrazilEmbrapa: Empresa Brasilera de Pesquisa AgropecuariaFounded in 1972, in 2005/6 massive effort for tech infrastructures improvement (R$ 90m): E.g. National Agribusiness Nanotechnology Lab (biosensors, smart packaging)Today the largest intermediate institutions for research at the interface between agriculture, biotechnologies and advanced manufacturing.Main functions:Bridging and transferring knowledge across different sectors and, thus, facilitating various forms of inter-sectoral learning (e.g. satellite monitoring service for acquisition of remote sensor images and field data, 1989)Providing “translation research”: translate new findings and discoveries from fundamental research into engines of innovation and, thus, new products, processes and services and their scale up/manufacturability.E.g. The ‘Cerrado miracle’: first feasibility study (PADAP), then scaled up by JICA (PRODECER) and extended to other areasProviding infratechnologies and related infrastructure services including measurement and test methods (metrology), process and quality control techniques (standards), evaluated scientific and engineering data and technical dimensions of product interfacesRecently inspired the idea of Embrapi: Empresa Brasilera de Pesquisa IndustrialEmbrapa was founded in 1972 as a response to the main weaknesses of DNPEA (National Agricultural Research and Experiment Department) including “researchers’ lack of awareness of the basic needs of agriculture and the lack of intradepartmental and external interaction among researchers, extension workers, and farmers (which had led to instances of unproductive duplication of research efforts)”.Agricultural research started being more cross-pollinated by research in advanced manufacturing.A good example of this is the satellite monitoring services for the acquisition and processing of remote sensor images and field data. The Satellite Monitoring Centre was created in 1989 in an area of 20,000 sqm in Campinas (Sao Paulo state) assigned by the Brazilian Army to Embrapa for the development of a special unit focused on territorial management systems and electronic networks for modern agriculture.PADAP : Program of Guided Settlement of Alto ParanaibaPRODECER: Japan-Brazil Cooperation Program for Cerrados DevelopmentIn , massive efforts to improve and renovate its infrastructure (R$ 90 million) and investments at the interface between agriculture, biotechnologies and advanced manufacturing.Facilities for quality improvement in the meat production chain.An aquaculture lab prioritising water quality control, fish feeding and health.A new Enology Lab to boost wine production in the Northeastern Semi-Arid Region.The construction of a worldwide unique National Agribusiness Nanotechnology Lab focused on the development of sensors and biosensors for food quality control, certification and traceability.

33The future of industrial policies: emerging trends and practices for value creation and capture
34Emerging trends and practices (I) “Most modern technologies are systems, which means interdependencies exist among a set of industries that contribute advanced materials, various components, subsystems, manufacturing systems and eventually service systems based on sets of manufactured hardware and software” (p. 6). The modern global economy is therefore constructed around supply chains, whose tiers (industries) interact in complex ways”.(Tassey, NIST 2010)Over the past two decades the global manufacturing landscape has been reshaped by profound structural transformations. These structural dynamics have been mainly driven by changes within and increasing interdependences across national manufacturing systems (e.g. ….. Tassey quote), their underpinning sectors and technologies. In this respect the global financial crisis has been accelerating ongoing structural trends.Industrial policies have been designed and implemented by major industrial economies in the recent past in order to govern these transformations and respond to these different challenges.
35Emerging trends and practices (II) Packages Reliance on sectoral policies (even among advanced developed economies), increasingly substituted by/combined with cross-sectoral policies aimed at picking cross-cutting technologies (also in catching up economies): major focus on general purpose technologies, enabling technologies and platforms development.Increasing emphasis on ‘selective learning’ and technological infrastructure provision for reducing the risk involved in technological change, scaling up production and addressing manufacturability challenges: focus on infra-technologies and quasi-public good facilities for specialist contract R&D, rapid prototyping, quality/standards development…Increasing awareness that existing and developing industrial commons (closely complementary and geographically clustered manufacturing competences) offers competitive advantage and resilience to the national manufacturing system – emphasis on industrial ecosystem development
36Emerging trends and practices (III) Policy model Multi-layered industrial policy model combining top-down and bottom-up approaches (like the one adopted in the US and Germany) offers more flexibility in the composition of the policy package and adoption of complementary (as well as only apparently contrasting) measures.However, 'multi-layered' policy regime runs the risk of incoherence and different levels undermining each other.
37Emerging trends and practices (IV) Alignment and coherence along transformation cycles National industrial, institutional and cultural features confer certain ‘qualities’ on national manufacturing systems (coordination, long term orientation, industrial intelligence, coherence in transitioning from one transformation cycle to another).However countries are adopting new institutional solutions to exploit complementarities within policy packages and give them coherence over time
