Who wins in South-South trade agreements? New evidence for MERCOSUR

Author

Abstract

Using a detailed database on intra-MERCOSUR tariffs, we estimate the effect of tariff preferences on the origin of imports of MERCOSUR members. The results show tariff preferences affected imports patterns in the cases of Argentina and Uruguay, and to a less extent also those of Brazil. For the first two countries the results support the hypothesis that MERCOSUR has produced a diversion of trade, no similar evidence is found for Brazil and Paraguay.
