The product space is a network connecting products that are likely to be co-exported. The product space can be used to predict future exports, since countries are more likely to start exporting products that are related to current exports. Relatedness measures the distance between a product, and all of the products a country currently specializes in.
This network shows the products most related to the production structure of Argentina. These are products that tend to be co-exported with the products that Argentina exports. Higher relatedness values indicate greater knowledge, which predicts a greater probability of exporting that product in the future.
The Complexity-Relatedness diagram compares the risk vs strategic value of a country's potential export oppotunities.
Relatedness is predictive of the probability that a country increases its exports in a product. Complexity, is associated with higher levels of income, economic growth, less income inequality, and lower greenhouse emissions.
During the last 20 years Argentina's economy has become relatively less complex, moving from the 36th to the 53rd position in the ECI rank.
These economic complexity rankings use 6 digit exports classified according to the HS96 classification. We consider only countries with population of at least 1 million and exports of at least $1 billion, and products with world trade over $500 million.
