“According to a study by economists Nikita Céspedes, María Aquije, Alan Sánchez and Rafael Vera Tudela, the individual analysis of the FTA with the United States suggests that Peruvian companies that trade with this country are those that have improved productivity gains”, you can read in El Comercio.
“The exporters report an average gain of 3%, the importers an average gain of 8%; and those that export and import, one of 12% “, indicates the investigation, according to El Comercio.
Trade agreements also induce changes in companies’ productivity through three channels: competition that encourages them to be more efficient; access to intermediate and capital goods at lower costs, which allows them to absorb technology; and, exports, which select the most productive firms.
