Survey results show that a large segment of the manufacturing sector, mostly larger-scale units originally established within a highly subsidized and protected economic environment, is experiencing difficulty in adapting to liberalization
measures. On the other hand, small-scale enterprises, which did not benefit from the same kind of protection as their larger counterparts, are experiencing growth. However, if current trends are maintained, the vitality of the small-scale sector will probably not be sufficient to prevent deindustrialization
of the country.
