By combining visibility and capability logics, we propose that at the earlier stage of catch-up, SOEs are more likely to perform technology importation than technology assimilation, while POEs are more likely to perform technology assimilation than technology importation. Also, at the later stage of catch-up, SOEs are more likely to perform technology innovation than technology assimilation, while POEs are more likely to integrate various technology activities. Based upon a sample of SOEs and POEs in a technology cluster in China, our results support these arguments.
