El presente trabajo analiza el papel que la apertura comercial tiene en los procesos de desarrollo.
Se discuten los aspectos estáticos y dinámicos de la apertura comercial y se toma en
consideración las respuestas públicas a los fallos de mercado relacionados con los procesos
de industrialización. Finalmente, se estudia la relación existente entre la apertura y la calidad
institucional y los márgenes que los procesos de negociación en la OMC permiten a
los países en desarrollo para definir sus estrategias de industrialización.
This paper analyses the role of trade opening on developing processes. It discusses static
and dynamic aspects of the trade opening taking into account the public response to market
failures related to industrialization processes. Finally, it studies the existing relationship
between the opening, the institutional quality and the negotiation processes margins
that allow developing countries to define their industrialization strategies.
