Chapter Chapter 5 in Export Diversification and Economic Growth, 2011, pp 121-168 from Springer

Abstract: Abstract Chiefly, the current chapter aims to evaluate if Colombia is, indeed, strongly grounded in the “competitive fundamentals” that it requires for a successful process of export diversification. As has been suggested by Cramer (1999), while it is commonly believed that significant benefits could be expected from export diversification, this positive outcome should not be taken for granted. Domestic conditions are required, along with the diversification process.
