Intra-regional trade in Latin America and the Caribbean remains at low levels: Only a fifth (19.2%) of exports are destined for other countries in the region. Furthermore, commodities deliveries continue to account for a large portion of the export basket. ECLAC thus proposes the creation of regional value chains to widen demand, foster intra-regional trade and diversify production.
