  1. For this final table, only products with a PRODY of more than 20,000 (more than 20,000 dollars per capita) are considered. Only products with initial code 5, 6, 7 and 8, according to the SITC, which refer to chemical products, manufactured articles, machinery and equipment of transport and several manufactures, respectively, are taken. To determine the “best,” we took the standardized value of PRODY, density and strategic value and we gave each one a weight of 1/3. These values were added and organized from highest to lowest. The table shows uniquely the top 10 products
