Abstract

We examine the impact of trade related R&D spillovers from he country's partners in the MERCOSUR as well as from the EU and NAFTA blocs and the rest of the world on total factor productivity (TFP) for the Uruguayan case at the industry level, for the period 1988-1995. Furthermore we analyze the impact of domestic R&D in Uruguay. There is evidence of trade related technology diffusion from MERCOSUR partners to Uruguay, while domestic R&D as a positive impact on productivity. Thus, policies aimed to decreasing trade barriers within the MERCOSUR and promoting domestic R&D would enhance Uruguayan manufacturing productivity.
