Implantation of Motor Manufacturing in Latin America

  • Rhys Jenkins
Part of the Latin American Studies Series book series (LASS)


It was in the context of the intensified international competition in the motor industry from the mid-fifties described in the previous chapter that a number of Latin American states took steps to promote the development of local manufacturing activities, while others began to regulate and promote assembly activities in order to make increasing use of locally produced inputs. This chapter examines the way in which these policies interacted with the international system conditioning the emergence of a particular structure in the Latin American motor industry.
