This note explores the determinants of intra-industry trade by extending the standard Chamberlinian-Ricardian monopolistic competition trade model (e.g., Krugman, 1979) to have a continuum of industries (e.g., Dornbusch et al., 1977). It shows that the degree of cross-country technical differences among industries plays an important role as a determinant of trade within each industry.
