CASTILHO, Marta dos Reis; COSTA , Leonardo Thuler; COSTA , Kaio Vital da. Geographical and sectoral specialization of Brazilian value-added exports. Revista Brasileira de Inovação, Campinas, SP, v. 22, n. 00, p. 1–34, 2023. DOI: 10.20396/rbi.v22i00.8669009. Disponível em: Acesso em: 13 abr. 2024.


This paper deepens the analysis of the insertion of Brazil into the so-called Global Value Chains by applying the decomposition methodology of gross exports proposed by Wang, Wei and Zhu (2014, 2018). Such methodology proposes to decompose gross exports into several components making it possible to measure the domestic and foreign value added embedded in bilateral and sectoral exports and, thus, to characterize more accurately the participation of countries into CGV. Using data from the WIOD database for the period 2000-2014, we examine, first, the Brazilian insertion into CGVs in an international comparative perspective and, secondly, the Brazilian specialization for exports in value for three of its main trading partners (China, US and EU). The analysis of the geographical and sectoral exports profile is of interest to Brazil since the country's commercial specialization differs significantly according to its partners.
