The literature on productive structure e economic growth shows the relevance of industry in the process of product expansion for both developed e developing countries. Recent studies also suggest that increasing participation of the modern services sector (industrial services) contributes to innovation, productivity, e hence growth. The main goal of this paper is to propose a theoretical discussion about the importance of the modern services sector for Latin America e proposes to update the central thesis of the Latin American structuralist approach. The data suggest that, as with industry, the center-periphery relationship is perpetuated in services. The ECLAC school of thought remains current e contributes to explain the underdevelopment of Latin American countries.
