This work will analyse the external sector of Argentina in a long-term, (1960-2013 period), with the aim of analysing the dynamics of economic growth in three stages first, that of the consolidation of the industrialist developmental paradigm (late '50s to the mid-'70s); secondly, that of structural adjustment and economic liberalization (mid-1970s to 2001) and, thirdly, that of post-convertibility (2002-2013), characterised mainly by accelerated growth with inclusion. The study seeks to analyse the main determinants of the problems of external restriction in the long period of analysis, with particular emphasis on the evolution of the current account.
