Dinâmica e competitividade setorial das exportações brasileiras: uma análise de painel para o período recente


  • Holland, Márcio

The main aim of this paper is to assess the relationship among the Brazilian exports, the Revealed Comparative Advantage Index (RCV) and the Balance Trade Contribution Index (TBC), according to panel data estimations. We can draw a conclusion that Brazilian exports are positively associated with the RCV, but negatively related to the TBC. As our analysis is concerned with the immediate impact of the currency depreciation in 1999, our remarkable result is that most Brazilian exports increased far more in sectors with high RCV than in sectors with high TBC.
