"Manufacturing technology and raw materials are intricately intertwined in a modern economy. But there does not appear to exist either a rigorously articulate theoretical basis for a robust empirical validation of the relationships between industrial capacity utilization, local sourcing of raw materials and technology development. It is in an attempt to provide a plausible conceptual and empirical for these linkages that this study has its primary justification."
