(...) The results suggest that, although some Latin American countries have made inroads in knowledge-intensive service segments and have comparative advantages in them, the percentage of "rising stars" (dynamic sectors in which a country or region is gaining in market share) is still low, while there is a high percentage of "missed opportunities" (dynamic sectors in which a country or region is losing market share). This points up the existence of areas in which the region's competitive position is weak and in which policies are needed to leverage its competitive advantages and remove the obstacles that are holding it back from establishing a more advantageous position in knowledge-intensive service markets.

(...) The document highlights that this diagnosis is likely attributable to several factors, among them, issues relating to the nature of comparative advantage and trade complementarity between CARICOM countries and their partners, as well as non-tariff measures implemented by the second ones, which may impede trade flows. (...) The publication suggests that for the subregion’s extraregional trade agreements to generate an expansion in exports, countries of the Community may need to address their structural rigidities and transform their production systems, including improving the business environment, as well as broaden existing and future agreements to include a services liberalization regime in order to exploit comparative advantages in key sectors in Latin America with which they have a high level of trade complementarity.

(...) The main contributions made by this study are the following: i); it offers a different perspective for interpreting technological change in Latin America and seeks to develop a concept equivalent to that of the "innovative advantage" used in studies on the developed countries; ii); it suggests that, in a context in which enterprises mainly innovate through the incorporation of know-how developed by other organizations, established enterprises tend to enjoy advantages for the incorporation of technical progress, and iii); in view of this, it may be assumed that in those activities where product or process innovation creates competitive advantages for established enterprises, "innovative entry" will not be a frequent phenomenon.
