    The paper tests the hypothesis that a country's net performance in its bilateral trade in differentiated products is determined by 1) "revealed" comparative advantage defined for the industry, in accordance with its conceptual basis, and 2) specific factors related to the country, whose benefit to the industry may be viewed as exploitation of economies of scope. Ce travail se propose de tester l’hypothèse que les performances nettes réalisées par un pays dans ses échanges extérieurs croisés de produits différenciés sont déterminés 1) par l’avantage comparatif « révélé » défini pour chaque produit, en conformité avec sa base conceptuelle, et 2) par l’effet spécifique propre à l’économie nationale dont l’appropriation au profit de la branche relève des « économies de champs ».
