The analysis of the domestic content of exports has called the attention of a number of authors in the last years, with the growing importance of global value chains. As long as manufacturing production is increasingly fragmented between several countries and firms, the country responsible for final goods exports may have a small share in its added value. The purpose of this paper is to analyze the evolution of domestic content of exports of the main economies of Latin America and Asia between the early 1990's and late 2000's, by mean of a especially designed measure and assess their degree of productive integration in the value chains.
