Continuously improving the infrastructure in those countries will also achieve sustainable development in different fields such as schools, factories, and roads, not only in technology (Ng’ang’a, ). A developing country's choice of an appropriate technology from among those available for use in a particular industry is critical: alternative technological strategies that involve varying mixes of capital, labor, and social costs could have significantly different impacts not only on the industry but also on the country itself, especially one whose industrial base is restricted.
