MARTINEZ MARTINEZ, Adriana; SANTOS NAVARRO, Gabriel  and  GARCIA GARNICA, Alejandro. Productive Specialization and Relational Analysis: The Automotive Industry in Guanajuato. Frontera norte [online]. 2017, vol.29, n.58, pp.121-140. ISSN 2594-0260.

The main objective of this paper is to measure, on the basis of the Economic Censuses 2004, 2009 and 2014, as well as 2008 Input-Output Matrix, the productive specialization using the location coefficient and the relational analysis of the automotive industry in Guanajuato. The main findings are an increasing specialization of some economic activities and a permanence of a low level of contribution of locally produced inputs. All of this opens up significant challenges for industrial policy in this region.

Keywords : automotive industry; productive specialization; relational analysis; Guanajuato; Bajío.
