This edition of IDEA draws from a forthcoming IDB book, Export Pioneers in Latin America, which analyzes a series of case studies of successful new export activities throughout the region to learn how pioneers jumpstart a virtuous process leading to economic transformation. The cases of blueberries in Argentina, avocados in Mexico and aircraft in Brazil illustrate how an initially successful export activity did not stop with the discovery of a single viable product, but instead continued to evolve.
