A new tool developed by ECLAC and IPEA.

The fruit of almost three years of intense work, the regional input-output matrix (IOM) created by the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) and the Institute for Applied Economic Research (IPEA) was presented on November 18, 2015, at the Federation of Industries of the State of São Paulo (FIESP), during the seminar entitled “Productive Integration in South America.” The aim of this new tool is to enable the creation of better public policies and also to prioritize analyses of the private sector.
