Déficit peruano, perfiles de comercio y bloques económicos regionales en los noventa
Peru faces an increasing desequilibrium in its trade balance on the nineties, in spite of an expansion on its exports´ value. In part these deficits are presented with our commercial partners of the Andean Community and Mercosur. This paper presents a disaggregated analysis of the Peruvian trade with the Andean Community and Mercosur, trying to identify some peculiarities since in several years we had positive balances in the trade with other extra-regional blocks. Also, we present the sectors with a significant intraindustry trade, as often as the exports with more value added go toward Latin America. Finally, we have estimated indexes reflecting the comparative advantages of the trade which contribute to contrast the specialization pattern with the world and the one with the Andean Community and Mercosur. In short, we compare the trade patterns with the regional and extra-regional partners in an open economic context. This is an empirical approach which tries to identify difficulties that must be resolved to improve our insertion into the world economy.
