Abstract

The aim of this paper is to analyze the behavior and determinants of Brazilian states exports, by technological intensity levels, for the period of commodity prices shocks. The results showed that sectors of higher technology lost representativeness in exports and that the real exchange rate can facilitate access for strategic sectors in the international market.
