[Analysis of the productive structure of the Brazilian Amazon]

This study presents an analyze of the productive structure of the Amazon region and the relations that take place among their states and the rest of Brazil, using input-output analysis. The analysis is conducted by first studying, through an interregional input-output system, how the economic relations take place in the Amazon region. Then, through a series of methodologies, like multipliers, and backward and forward linkages it is made a comparative study of the differences in productive structures among the Amazon Region states. The results show that there is a relative heterogeneity in the productive structure of the states, as well as a great dependence from the goods and services coming from the rest of Brazil. The key sectors in the Amazon region are related to the agricultural production, extractive sectors, food industry, lodging and trade.
