Abstract

[fre] Depuis le début de la décennie, les pays du Mercosur ont connu une forte croissance des échanges et des investissements directs étrangers (IDE). Nous examinons les liens entre les IDE, le commerce et l'intégration régionale dans le cadre de la formation du Mercosur, à l'aide d'équations gravitationnelles. Nos estimations prennent en considération le processus d'intégration régionale et portent sur les flux d'échanges et d'IDE entre les pays du Mercosur et ceux de l'OCDE sur la période 1985-1997. Nos résultats indiquent une relation clairement positive entre les IDE et les échanges. Ils ne sont toutefois pas concluants en ce qui concerne l'influence de l'intégration régionale comme facteur explicatif de la croissance des IDE. [eng] Trade, FDI and regional integration in the Mercosur. . In the 90's, the Mercosur countries experienced a strong growth of trade and foreign direct investment (FDI). To examine the relationship between FDI, trade and regional integration in the Mercosur, we test two gravitational equations on trade and FDI flows between Mercosur and OECD members during the period 1985-1997, which take into account the regional integration agreement. Our results show a positive link between FDI and trade flows but are mitigated on the impact of the economic integration on FDI.
