  • João Ferreira do Amaral

    () (Instituto Superior de Economia e Gestão)


Starting from a somewhat backward structure based on low technology sectors Portuguese exports in the last decade have been changing rapidly in response to the new patterns of world trade. Higher technology exports are increasing their position and intra-sectoral specialization is prevailing.The paper tries to assess the performance of the Portuguese exports in this new environment, how far the process of change has gone and what can be done to accelerate it in the future.
