Abstract

This study examines research and development (R&D) activities of SMEs and large firms. Using the World Bank Enterprise Survey, we find that the percentage of medium-sized firms investing in R&D activities is higher than that of small and large-size firms. Further, we explore the productivity of R&D in terms of introduction of a new product or process into the market. We find that the percentage of firms that introduced a new product or process does not vary in terms of firm size.
