BALTAR, Carolina Troncoso. Inter and intra industrial external trade: Brazil 2003-2005. Econ. soc. [online]. 2008, vol.17, n.1, pp.107-134. ISSN 0104-0618.

The period between 2003-2005 illustrated a high growth in world trade. In this context, Brazil was able to revert its trade deficit, taking advantage of a considerable surplus. Nevertheless, this trade dynamism did not go hand in hand with national economic growth. This article makes an empirical analysis of Brazilian trade in this recent period of world trade expansion, with a view to comparing the kinds of Brazilian trade with the industrial structure that exists in this country. The methodology adopted is innovative in that it allows the evaluation of trade from a qualitative perspective, by examining the kind of product and region of origin and destination of the flows.

Keywords : International trade; Economic development; Industrial organization.
