Abstract

Siguiendo parcialmente las sugerencias de Head y Mayer (2003), en este trabajo se prueba la relacion fundamental de Puga (1999) entre apertura comercial y aglomeracion en el sector industrial. El resultado principal es que la concentracion del empleo y la produccion pueden surgir si dos paises entran en un proceso de integracion.
