Trade-in medical devices such as orthopedic devices are vital to the region's development, with all markets dependent on imports, except for Brazil, which has a strong local domestic industry. Brazil, Argentina, and Chile import more high-specification medical technology products, while Peru, Mexico, and Venezuela import more consumables. Regional medical exports are low, except for Mexico, representing nearly 90% of the region's export capabilities. Continuing strong export growth in the country is almost entirely due to U.S manufacturer's activities. Brazil's exports are low compared to the size of its medical market, even though exports have more than doubled in the last eight years. The deficit in the balance of trade has increased in recent years, despite the weight of Mexico's exports. Cuba is one of the world's last unreformed communist countries.
