Brésil-Argentine : effets statiques et dynamiques de l'intégration commerciale
Is the trade integration of Argentina and Brazil favourable to their insertion in the world economy ? The static approach underlines the high costs of some activities of production, which are the subject of increasing exchanges under the protection of Mercosur's CET. But the simultaneous progression of regional preferences and of the revealed comparative advantages of some branches shows that the boom in regional trade can be compatible with multilateral performances. The dynamic approach integrates the expansion of bilateral intra-industry trade and makes it possible to detect gains of competitiveness due to tougher competition and to economies of scale. The context of new regionalism favours competitive effects : the long-term convergence of regional and multilateral preferences goes with an opening to foreign investments. Multinational firms renew the organisation and production methods of the automotive sector, yet without reorienting their strategy towards other markets than those of Latin America.
