Abstract

The export dynamics of industrial activities in the country is analyzed by estimating regional indicators of productivity, sophistication and use of network analysis to mp exporting industries space. The results show that products related to the manufacturing sector, specifically the Transportation Industry, have a higher level of sophistication. The regions with the most connectivity between industries are the Border and the Central Bajío. This study may contribute to the design of public policies, supporting the development of productive chains with greater proximity in industry space.

 

Se analiza la dinámica exportadora de las actividades industriales en México, mediante la estimación de indicadores regionales de productividad, sofisticación y el análisis de redes para el mapa de espacio de las industrias exportadoras. Los resultados muestran que los productos del sector manufacturero, específicamente la Industria de Equipo de Transporte, tienen un mayor nivel de sofisticación. Además, destacan una mayor conectividad entre industrias, como la región Frontera y Centro-Bajío. Este estudio puede coadyuvar en el diseño de políticas públicas y al desarrollo de cadenas productivas con mayor proximidad en el espacio de industrias.
