As a result, Argentina showed an annual deficit in its trade with Brazil on the order of $400 million for the first four years of the 19851989 period. This is equivalent to the average Brazilian surplus in intraMERCOSUR trade during the whole period. This trend was reversed in 1989, basically as a result of the implementation of the PICEAB agreement described in Chapter 2, the serious Argentine recession of that year which seriously restricted imports and the reactivation of the Brazilian economy.

The accuracy of our results is also limited by the fact than when relating tariff barriers to a country's comparative advantages, the trade that might have occurred without these barriers has not been taken into account.
