We do know however, from the previous chapter, that reductions in the degree of capital and import intensity tend significantly to increase the efficiency of firms (as measured by domestic resource cost) in the industrial sector in Tanzania. It is plausible to argue therefore that the low domestic resource cost calculations for Friendship (which are less than one over a wide range of the firm's output) are, at least to some extent, attributable to the technology that was chosen. Mwanza, on the other hand, performs poorly on all indicators of performance, at least partly, one strongly suspects, on technological grounds.
