O Desempenho Do Brasil No Mercado Internacional De Pedras Preciosas
AbstractEste trabalho analisa a inserção brasileira no mercado internacional de pedras preciosas, um setor de grande importância para o País, embora ainda pouco estudado. A metodologia escolhida consiste no cálculo de alguns indicadores de competitividade internacional, capazes de evidenciar os principais elementos condicionantes do desempenho brasileiro nesse setor. Os resultados encontrados confirmam o potencial do setor, em termos de vantagens comparativas no mercado internacional. Os efeitos observados na decomposição das exportações estão ligados, basicamente, à dinâmica dos principais mercados de destino e também ao crescimento do comércio mundial. Destaca-se, adicionalmente, que apesar da alta informalidade no setor e da falta de informações sistematizadas observa-se recente esforço de reorganização da atividade. Esse movimento, iniciado em instâncias governamentais, visa incentivar o País a participar mais ativamente dos fluxos internacionais de pedras de maior valor agregado, gerando empregos, renda e maior desenvolvimento interno. This work analyzes the Brazilian insertion in the international market of precious stones, which is important to the Country, although it is still little studied. The methodology consists in calculating some indicators to measure the international competitiveness, that are able to indicate the main elements to the development of that Brazilian`s section. The results obtained have confirmed the potential of that section, in terms of comparative advantages at the international market. Decomposition of the exports trend in different components has shown that the exports are linked basically to the main export markets` dynamics, and also to the rate of growth in the world market.
