Folke Steen, Thyge Enevoldsen, Helle Fischer, Niels Fold: South-South trade in manufactured goods—with a case study of India's export of capital goods to Tanzania. Geografisk Tidsskrift 88: 34–44. Copenhagen. 1988. South-South trade in manufactured goods expanded rapidly through the 1970s, but stagnated in the early 1980s. The leading exporters in South-South trade are the newly industrialising countries that account for about half of South-South exports of manufactured goods and an even greater share of the export of capital goods. A case study of India's export of capital goods to Tanzania reveals that financial and transportation problems act as barriers to South-South trade. In a development perspective, however, the crucial question is whether South-South trade will result in a successful transfer of technology.
