This article examines the textile industry as a case study of some of the problems facing industrial policy in the Nicaraguan context. These are seen as deriving from two main sources: the historical legacy of the pre-revolutionary period and the external military and economic pressures on Nicaragua today. After discussing the structure of the textile industry, its economic significance and its importance within the overall development strategy, the article examines the historical legacy of the agro-export model of development and import substitution within the framework of the Central American Common Market. The major problems currently facing the textile industry are identified and proposals made for restructuring the industry.
