Competitividad y medio ambiente: la construcción de patrones exportadores sustentables en América Latina
In this study we discuss the need to develop sustainable export patterns in Latin America that fulfill two criteria: reduce the importance of activities that impose the greatest environmental impacts and increase the relevance of activities and products with a higher technological content, since these are the most dynamic in international markets, tend to be cleaner, and present positive spillovers to the rest of the economy. We propose a conceptual framework and analyze the export profiles of Argentina, Brazil, Chile and Mexico, where the heterogeneity among Latin American countries is evident. We conclude that the development of sustainable export patterns will require decisive actions in the environmental and technological domains.
