Abstract : There are benefits and costs on both sides of the co-production relationship. Without attempting to undertake formal benefit-cost analyses, the study tries to evaluate the positive and negative aspects of international production sharing arrangements. The aim is to examine the nature of these activities and to arrive at some conclusions about how they might evolve and affect the future of North-South economic relations. Four case studies provide specific insights into these relationships. Three country studies afford examinations of a diversity of co-production experiences. The semiconductor study analyzes in detail the factors underlying the internationalization of the semiconductor.
