Abstract

PONCE D, Mauricio; CONTRERAS G, Manuel  and  VASQUEZ S, Marcia. CHILEAN EXPORT OF SOFTWOOD SAWNWOOD: AN ANALYSIS OF ITS COMPETITIVENESS. Maderas, Cienc. tecnol. [online]. 2007, vol.9, n.1, pp.45-57. ISSN 0718-221X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-221X2007000100004.

The competitiveness is analyzed on the principal markets of the Chilean exports of saw wood of radiata pine in the period 1994-2004 (Contreras, 2006). The methodology applied is "Competitive Analysis of Nation" (CAN), created by the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (CEPAL), who allows to obtain a dynamic vision of the situations of competitiveness of the product on the studied markets. The results were compared with a similar study of the period 1987 to 1997 realized by Fuenzalida (1999). The analysis of the competitiveness in the period proves to be 1994-2004 that the product has Nascent Start’s competitive position, on the markets of China, Spain, United States and Morocco; of Waning Start’s position on the markets of Mexico and Canada; of Lost Opportunity in Japan, Saudi Arabia and United Kingdom; and of Setback in South Korea. On the other hand, comparing both periods, one thought that the markets of United States, South Korea, Japan, United Kingdom and Saudi Arabia, which they repeat in both periods, diminished their competitive position of the first period to the second one. Likewise, it is possible to conclude that the world trade of forest products grew more than the trade than saw wood
