An approach to estimating the potential effect from strengthening of comparative advantages in manufacturing industries due to intensification of industrial cooperation in the course of shaping the Common Economic Space has been suggested. The approach is based on estimating the interrelation of comparative advantages in final and intermediate commodities of the industry and empirically defining the labor productivity gap between the enterprises with the growing and decreasing staff.
