This paper expands the methodology developed by Hidalgo et al. (2007), Hausman et al. (2007) and Hidalgo and Hausman (2009) to analyse the relationship between structural change, economic complexity and technological intensity in Portugal. To this end, product space networks as well as indicators of revealed relative (dis)advantages are built and analysed from 1980 to 2010. The results show that in spite of a loss in terms of competitiveness in high-technology goods, Portugal’s long term trend is promising, giving the improvement of the network in terms of goods of intermediate technological intensity and the reduction of the share of primary and primary based goods in total exports. This trend reflects the systematic improvement of the sophistication index of the Portuguese trade after the establishment of the European Union.
