This article analyses the role played in world trade by the main countries of Latin America during the period 1965-1987. The analysis is based on a reclassification of commercial trends which shows both the intensity of use of the factors concerned and the technological content of these trends. Also, by constructing an indicator showing the contribution to the trade balance, we can compare the patterns of international specialization of the region as a whole and of each country in particular, as well as the changes made in those patterns as a result of the trade and exchange policies applied during the last two decades.
