A estrutura tecnológica das exportações dos países em desenvolvimento nos anos 2000: análise e implicações para o crescimento


  • Anna Carolina Londe


  • Gilberto Libânio



This paper examines the technological structure of exports from developing countries between 2000 and 2010, according to the classification by technological intensity proposed by Lall (2000). It compares data on exports from developing and developed countries, and from the main export regions among developing countries. Considering the idea that the technological structure of exports has crucial implications for development, the paper also investigates the relation between export structure and economic growth, using panel data. The estimation results suggest that – despite the boom in commodities demand and prices during most of the decade – countries with export structures with higher technological content have presented higher growth rates during the period of analysis.
