About the product

Export growth in Latin America and the Caribbean over the past 20 years has enabled the region to regain part of the share of global trade that it had lost during the three preceding decades. However, this has not had much effect on the pace of overall economic growth. This publication analyses the characteristics of the region’s export development over the past twp decades and the reasons why spillovers to structural change and economic growth have remained limited.
