Abstract

The objective of this paper was to analyze the effects of the New Automotive Regime and Inovar-Auto Regime on the national production, export and import of automotive vehicles, using a comparative analysis of these public policies. In this comparative, we considered real data of the automobile industry, as well as information obtained through the promulgation of provisional measures, laws and decrees. No regime proved totally effective in expanding domestic production relative to world production. The first regime proved to be effective in increasing relative exports, but this was not the case for the second regime and both regimes proved effective in reducing imports.
