Abstract

In this paper we used a model of New Economic Geography (NEG) to simulate the effects on industrial location in Uruguay for the implementation of alternative trade policy and infrastructure policy. The exercises show that a reduction of non-tariff barriers with Argentina reduces the location of industries in Uruguay, while implementing the same policy in Brazil increases the location of industries in Uruguay. Infrastructure policies, regardless of the country that are made, increase the localization of industries in Uruguay.
