The respective figures will be even more, if unregistered units are taken into account. Its total contribution to GNP is nearly 13%, which is more than the heavy industries sector. Production of electronics, which is regarded as an index of national economic growth , is heavily concentrated in the small sector. What is of greater significance is that the large industries are heavily dependent on the small units for ancillaries. In some cases finished products on the large scale sector consist of as high a proportion as 80% from the small sector.
