Exogenous technical progress can have uneven impacts on productivity contingent on absorptive capacity, structural congruence and trade intensity. The paper illustrates the role of enabling behind-the-border factors for effective absorption and is pertinent for discussing issues like ‘Europe 2020’or Lisbon strategy for inclusive growth. Drawing on our model, we illustrate that the capture-parameter is the propellant force for effective assimilation of foreign technology of recent vintage. The capture parameter is the outcome of endogenous decision-making process. The ‘productivity bonus’ mechanism leaves room for changing the results via skill-mix composition. However, it awaits implementation in a large-scale economy-wide modeling framework for further extension.
