To achieve the project goal, studies will be carried out, which will contribute with an analysis of the existing relation between structural heterogeneity and economic growth. Also the evolution of productivity between different productive sectors will be analyzed with the purposes of evaluating the level of productive linkage among sectors, and the value chains developed with the transnational companies.
