The likely effects of Greece's membership of the European Economic Community on the rather large number of small-scale enterprises in Greek manufacturing industry has caused some considerable concern to the business community and to the governments. This thesis undertakes theoretical and empirical analysis of the 'question. The Heckscher-Ohlin model combined with Rybczynski Theorem as elaborated by H.G. Johnson would predict a shrinkange in the importance of small-scale manufacturing sector. Additional "market structure" consideration would strengthen this conclusion. The predictions of the theoretical analysis were tested by multiple regressions and the "beta coefficients" technique.The empirical evidence suggests that small-scale enterprises have successfully withstood foreign competition during the first seven years of Greece's association with E.E.G. The theoretical and empirical analysis of my study, thus, permit a certain optimism regarding the successful integration of Greek small enterprises within the European Economic Community.
