Within sectors of low-technology manufacturing, this was due to the gradual development of historical export product lines and gradual decline in historical domestic oriented production. In contrast, the structural change in jobs within sectors of hightechnology manufacturing resulted from the gradual accumulation of foreign capital with new export product lines and a phasing out of inefficient import substituting industry. Ireland’s industrial performance is shown to be an outcome of such path dependent structural change.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Statistical and Social Inquiry Society of Ireland||Journal:||Journal of the Statistical and Social Inquiry Society of Ireland||Volume:||29||Start page:||1||End page:||32||Copyright (published version):||2000, Statistical and Social Inquiry Society of Ireland||Keywords:||Manufacturing; Intra-sector structural change; Trade liberalisation||Subject LCSH:||Manufacturing industries--Ireland
