This report uses two newly developed OECD databases to examine sectoral performance over the last two decades for twelve countries including the United States, Japan, Canada and several European countries. Performance is evaluated by constructing various indicators that cover four broad areas of economic activity and which correspond to features affected by industrial and technology policy: investment in plant and equipment, investment in R&D, international trade, and structural change. The focus of the report is on international comparisons at a sectoral level. It provides a quantitative analysis of the evolution of triadic industries, seeking to identify the strengths and weaknesses of triad members, and the trajectories of their competitive positions.
