Una Propuesta Para La Orientación De La Politica Comercial Colombiana En Un Contexto De Eficiencia Y Equidad


  • Hernán Vallejo



Este documento plantea que el objetivo principal y de largo plazo de la política comercial colombiana debe ser llegar al libre comercio internacional. Dado que Colombia es un país pequeño con poco poder para promover la liberalización multilateral del comercio, el camino para lograrlo puede ser el de los acuerdos preferenciales de comercio, siempre y cuando dichos acuerdos sirvan como base y no como obstáculo para llegar al libre comercio de bienes y servicios. En este caso, los esfuerzos se deben enfocar en consolidar ALCA y alcanzar un acuerdo preferencial de comercio con la Unión Europea, dado el potencial de comercio que estos pactos tienen para Colombia. Este documento también plantea que los efectos distributivos del libre comercio, al igual que los efectos distributivos de la mayor parte de las decisiones de los agentes privados y públicos, se deben tratar con una orientación más precisa y eficiente de la política fiscal. La evidencia muestra que en esta área Colombia puede mejorar.
