That is excellent specific advice for individual companies. Many have disappeared that have not evolved. It really needs to be a passion to improve the product, like Royce of Rolls Royce had. He did not care what it cost or for the money. He wanted to make it better just to be the best.I remember well the first Jap bikes to enter the UK and the comments we Brit bikers made regards Jap junk. My BSA, Triumph, Royal Enfield were the kings of the road.
If you want to protect your home products
1. ensure they evolve with the latest technology
2. Do not assume that competition is inferior
British car manufacturing went the same way.
But, at the end of the day, if home built products are not up to scratch, do not answer consumers demands, then imports will and should win the day.
