New ECLAC Statistics on manufacturing industry in Latin-America

Industrial policy is as relevant today as it has been in the past for Latin America and the Caribbean. Steps towards development depend on a rational, inclusive, and sustainable industrial policy, guided by intensive use of information, that allows the definition and dissemination of indicators which are useful for decision-making. To this end, ECLAC makes available a group of statistical indicators on manufacturing calculated based on the repository of national economic surveys which allows the elaboration and dissemination of regional intermediate indicators by economic activity.
